Path to Nowhere
With so much development going on, its impacts are being felt in our streets, neighbourhoods and skies… Yes I said skies. Have you noticed that new developments (in already settled areas) are adding footpaths, lights and no trees? Residents in Fussell Street have reported new street lighting, and council officers have confirmed that a new footpath is on its way.
This is not a great plan guys! We are losing our night skies, and getting a heap of concrete footpaths to nowhere. Please report any new lights to us, and to council, if you are concerned about preserving our night skies. They wont know until we tell them.
Next week we are meeting with Councillors Des Hudson and Peter Innes along with Council Officers to discuss some strategic planning for the area. Tell us in comments below what is important to you… for better and worse. I know we have been talking strategic planning for a few years now, however we hope this will be the start of a good process, so stay strong, and stay engaged. Together we will get through, and protect the East from over-development.
Talk it up folks!
