MA­RINA FURPHY

Kwinana Courier - - Opinion - PAULINE DILLEY Shoal­wa­ter

I MUST keep faith with my fel­low man and trust that we all see through this mon­strous furphy called the Man­gles Bay Ma­rina. As we wait for the WAPC rec­om­men­da­tions to be handed down, know­ing that our State Gov­ern­ment will make its own de­ci­sion any­way, we must re­mind our­selves that the land in ques­tion was given to WA for pub­lic re­cre­ation. We are in great dan­ger of the out­come be­ing ex­clu­sive hous­ing on pub­lic land which will be owned by tem­po­rary res­i­dents (Christ­mas, Easter and pub­lic hol­i­days) while empty land through­out Rock­ing­ham lan­guishes de­spite in­fill pol­icy. No canals, no cafes, no ma­rina. Just houses for the rich. And the thin end of a very nasty wedge.
