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.
