Dalby Herald - - NEWS OPINION -

Let’s look at some of you com­ments on our re­cent Face­book posts.

■ On ‘Plans to con­vert park­land into aged care fa­cil­ity’.

Stewart Smith: Glad to see the lack of con­sul­ta­tion from the coun­cil with the peo­ple whose homes back on to the park­lands and how it may af­fect them. I'm all for more aged care fa­cil­i­ties but why take a park away from the lo­cal kids? l see lots of fam­i­lies us­ing the open park area. Once a park is gone it just means kids and fam­i­lies travel fur­ther to find one.

Kylie Nearhos: This is a great idea!!!

Matthew Ab­bott: It's good to see that peo­ple are look­ing at op­tions to ad­dress the lim­ited fa­cil­i­ties for el­derly peo­ple.

Peo­ple some­times get stuck in the hospi­tal sys­tem be­cause of this, mean­ing less beds for peo­ple who need them and ex­pos­ing the el­derly to things like cold and flu that can po­ten­tially cut their lives short.

Elaine Vadasz: Great idea.
