Stirling Times - - Opinion -

OUR West Aus­tralian coast is unique for its nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and the envy of other coun­tries.

Is Stir­ling coun­cil re­ally go­ing to hand over to the MRA large tracts of our dune sys­tem to be de­stroyed by a road that will do noth­ing to en­hance the Scar­bor­ough beach­front?

In ad­di­tion, the MRA also plans to al­low 18-storey high-rise build­ings in this area, more than dou­ble the pre­vi­ous eight-storey limit.

Is Scar­bor­ough set to be­come yet an­other clut­ter of high-rise con­crete, hot bi­tu­men and cars?

West Aus­tralians need to ap­ply their cre­ative tal­ents to this pro­ject in a way that is more re­spect­ful of the al­ready ex­ist­ing en­vi­ron­ment and will at­tract, rather than drive, peo­ple away from it. FRAN MALONEY, Trigg.
