Kings Park shining example
I note Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce president Karen Court (Concern over candidates’ lack of marina support, 14/10) predictably bewailing the opposition among council candidates to the proposed canal development on public land at Cape Peron.
Out comes the usual smoke and mirrors of “local jobs, economic development, boost to tourism,” and so on. To top it off she describes the site of the proposed development as “degraded bush”.
I should remind Ms Court that an area of degraded bush which had been logged for 35 years was set aside from further destruction in 1871.
Ms Court may have heard of it, it is called Kings Park. What a good letter that was from Brian Warner, “Marina plan will not affect the real Point Peron” ( Telegraph, 7/10). It is always nice to hear the facts rather than fiction.
He is correct, the development is not on Point Peron. It is actually in that uncared and grubby bush area that stretches from the RSL Caravan Park area towards the environment complex. Have the people who are against this project ever walked through this overgrown rubbish dump?
We can all still walk/drive to Point Peron, the beaches and fishing areas. The Rockingham silent majority have no problem with this development.
In fact, many welcome it.
