Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I AM very con­cerned about more uncer­tain­ties as­so­ci­ated with the forced amal­ga­ma­tion of South Perth and Vic­to­ria Park, in par­tic­u­lar the fu­ture of our War Memo­rial gar­dens.

The res­i­dents near the coun­cil of­fices and li­brary in Sandgate Street must be very up­set about the po­ten­tial sale of th­ese build­ings to pri­vate de­vel­op­ers for highrise apart­ment blocks.

How much will that re­duce the value of their prop­er­ties?

All city res­i­dents should be con­cerned about the ef­fects this sale could have on the memo­rial gar­den and war ceno­taph.

Will this spell the end of the tra­di­tional Anzac Day ser­vice in South Perth?

With the list of bro­ken prom­ises as­so­ci­ated with the amal­ga­ma­tion process to date, it is dif­fi­cult to trust any “as­sur­ances” of our Premier. CE­CILIA BROOKE, chair­woman, City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion.
