Green space race

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

IT'S with a dis­be­liev­ing in­ter­est I watch our new gov­ern­ment. First they cre­ated “bat­tle royale” over ed­u­ca­tion cen­tral and lost.

Next on the bat­tle­front is Kitch­ener Park, a most au­da­cious plan to re­move pre­cious green space from the peo­ple of Su­bi­aco.

Al­though I guess fair is fair, as the good res­i­dents of Dou­ble­view sac­ri­ficed green space in the bat­tle.

Two green spa­ces down and what’s next? One can only as­sume the next ca­su­alty will be the City Beach High site.

More space lost for­ever in a bat­tle eas­ily won by re-es­tab­lish­ing City Beach High, the only ca­su­alty there be­ing the oval at Dou­ble­view Pri­mary.

The ironic part of all of this? The bat­tle had been fought and won in the two years prior to the State Elec­tion.

It’s time for our new Gov­ern­ment to re­alise that green space is one thing that can’t be re­placed when it’s gone. PAUL CLE­MENTS Dou­ble­view
