Duty of care from council members
Ken George is totally within his rights to be concerned about road noise and traffic safety issues.
This is a real concern that is going to grow over the next 10 years and become a bigger problem if it is not dealt with now.
Council has based the 10 Year Plan on growth, and it is this growth that will cause greater road noise, traffic congestion, road deterioration and road safety issues.
Yet it does not surprise me that Council does nothing or plans to do nothing about it.
Council appears happy conveying the message that ‘everything is alright’ to the people as long as you get a library, pool or museum.
Where is their obligated ‘duty of care’ to the people, or are the people forgotten about? More importantly why is their ‘health and safety’ put at risk?
Sadly, there are more important issues such as fresh water supply, sewage and stormwater that need attention, as well as the growing traffic safety and road noise issues.
Council, it is time to represent the people, not yourselves.
