PER­HAPS the City of Stir­ling is right to start clamp­ing down more tightly on builders’ uses of verges be­cause of var­i­ous detri­ments which builders cause.

For ex­am­ple, here in the City of Gosnells we have re­cur­ring prob­lems with the likes of ir­re­spon­si­ble builders block­ing foot­paths for ex­ces­sive pe­ri­ods, in­clud­ing leav­ing them blocked for suc­ces­sive week­ends.

The City has had in­stances where ag­gres­sive builders have fenced out to the kerb line and thereby caused pedes­tri­ans to mix with ve­hi­cles on the car­riage­ways.

These builders should plan bet­ter to min­imise the detri­ments to oth­ers rather than just ex­press­ing their greed and con­tempt. ALF CAMP­BELL, Ken­wick
