Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

READ­ERS re­sponded to the City of Bel­mont’s de­ci­sion to halt ne­go­ti­a­tions with the de­vel­oper of a pro­posed 15-storey nurs­ing home in As­cot Wa­ters un­til it is re­duced to a max­i­mum height of five storeys.

‘ Well they won't keep tall build­ings away from Bel­mont for­ever... it has some of the best views of the CBD in all of Perth and this will need to be cap­i­talised on.

Shame the Bel­mont res­i­dents don't band to­gether to get more trees on their streets or bet­ter qual­ity in­fill.

Some of the stuff get­ting ap­proved in CoB is nasty, with zero street ap­peal.

Read­ers re­sponded to a Carlisle busi­ness’ wor­ries about its fu­ture af­ter the Town of Vic­to­ria Park gave away free mulch.

‘ Lo­cal busi­nesses should be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion! The mulch could have been do­nated to not­for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions, schools etc.
