No to ur­ban jun­gle

Wanneroo Times - - Opinion -

RE Wanneroo del­e­gates eye Asia, Week­ender, May 4. It's time to stand up and take con­trol of our City back from vested in­ter­ests.

Do we re­ally want places like Yanchep turned into 'planned' com­mu­ni­ties for half a mil­lion peo­ple?

Do we want ur­ban sprawl from Perth to Jurien Bay? If you don't, you need to make your views known to your coun­cil­lors and lo­cal politi­cians, or the Perth that you and your chil­dren live in will be the one that suits de­vel­op­ers and pri­vate equity firms.

I moved to Perth be­cause of the re­laxed life­style, open space and pris­tine beaches. There aren't many places in the world left like Perth and it's in dan­ger of be­ing ru­ined by greedy, un­fet­tered de­vel­op­ment.

If that's what you all want then I can move, but make sure it re­ally is what you want, be­cause we, the peo­ple, are ac­tu­ally in charge and can have the City that we want.

TIM GREEN, Pad­bury
