Who will police these “conditions”? Not council. What happens if the retaining wall, given consent some time ago by council, collapses onto the childcare centre? Nothing! It is Kindercare’s problem apparently. And it will be the neighbourhood’s job to ensure that the “condition” is adhered to. Welcome to the world of lodging complaints with council… Welcome to a neighbourhood where it is untenable for people to live and welcome to a traffic nightmare.
All the Arch Hill submitters expertise was ignored by commissioners. One has to ask why. Did council, inspire all the compelling evidence WAGER our rates in order to avoid going to environment court against a large, well resourced Aussie corporation? You bet they did. Democracy was paid lip service to – experienced and well respected professionals were ignored.
Unless, we can fight this in the Environment Court (which both Bunnings and Council are betting we won’t have the funds for)…Great North Road becomes open slather for the DIY warehouse wars. Why would council limit it to only Bunnings? It wouldn’t be fair would it? So if you love Lincoln Road Boulevard in Henderson, you’re going to love the new look Arch Hill.
