Park­ing mad over coun­cil

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

KEEP­ING a bal­ance be­tween the num­ber of mo­torists in the CBD and the num­ber of park­ing places is too mun­dane for our for­ward-think­ing vi­sion­ary coun­cil­lors.

They pre­fer to leave their mark on his­tory by build­ing dra­matic sculp­tures and grandly con­vert­ing (with­out a plan or fund­ing) the Court­house Ho­tel into an art gallery as part of a grand arts precinct.

Mat­ters such as en­sur­ing that an aquar­ium pro­vides the carpark­ing re­quired by their own reg­u­la­tions are be­neath them.

The CRC’s per­for­mance in try­ing to de­lay the Smith­field by­pass is a dis­grace. The coun­cil should be re­placed by an ad­min­is­tra­tor who can do the low-brow com­pe­tently. Sean McGinn, Clifton Beach
