Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

AGAIN, we see the to­tal dis­re­gard the Bar­nett Gov­ern­ment holds for South Perth coun­cil and res­i­dents.

The Min­is­ter for Plan­ning has ap­proved build­ings to the height of 36 me­tres on the cor­ner of Man­ning Road and Ley Street. He forced the zon­ing be changed to R160 when the max­i­mum pre­vi­ously in South Perth was R100.

He over­rode the coun­cil’s rec­om­mended max­i­mum height of 21 me­tres and other en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions.

When asked to com­ment on the pro­posal, 152 res­i­dents re­sponded with 90 per cent re­ject­ing the pro­posal in the low-rise res­i­den­tial area.

There will be in­creased haz­ards at the al­ready-danger­ous Ley Street and Man­ning Road in­ter­sec­tion. ROGER REYNOLDS, Man­ning.
