$60,000 for a fight­ing fund!

As a ratepayer of the City of South Perth, I strongly dis­ap­prove of ratepayer funds be­ing used to “in­ves­ti­gate” an ap­peal against the re­cent JDAP ap­proval of the 34storey Lu­miere at 74 Mill Point Road.

The 38- and 39-storey build­ings Civic Heart, Aure­lia and Glasshouse have all re­cently been ap­proved by coun­cil and it is be­com­ing ap­par­ent that this build­ing is be­ing sin­gled out.

Given that the de­vel­op­ers have met all of the City of South Perth’s cur­rent Town Plan­ning Scheme and spe­cial con­di­tions, I feel that us­ing ratepay­ers’ money to ap­peal this de­ci­sion would be a gross mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of funds.

If a few ratepay­ers are not happy with the de­ci­sion, I sug­gest they use their own funds, not mine. LIN­DEN KNIGHT, South Perth.
