Parks are not coun­cil’s to sell

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North - Townsville Bul­letin

I THOUGHT that one of the great things about be­ing Aus­tralian was ‘‘ fair­ness’’.

I ask my­self: ‘‘ is it fair that the coun­cil can sell pub­lic land with­out talk­ing to the pub­lic?’’ There is a line in the sand which should not be crossed.

The mem­bers of the coun­cil are only the cur­rent cus­to­di­ans of the land; they are not the own­ers of the land.

Sell­ing land that line.

This needs to be stopped and our ‘‘ green land’’ needs to be kept for the fu­ture gen­er­a­tion. Let’s be fair to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and keep our green spaces other­wise n e x t t i me i t mi g h t b e de­vel­op­ers who buy the land.
