In­dus­tries coun­cil has record of in­ter­fer­ence

Southern Telegraph - - News - R. Don­ald, Man­do­galup

The Kwinana In­dus­tries Coun­cil has been in­ter­fer­ing with the Man­do­galup res­i­dents’ prop­erty rights for a num­ber of years: for ex­am­ple: buf­fers, dust prob­lems, re­zon­ing ...

Direc­tor Chris Oughton hand-de­liv­ered let­ters in mid-year 2016 to all Man­do­galup res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties ask­ing res­i­dents to at­tend a meet­ing at the Dar­ius Wells Cen­tre in Kwinana on June 9, 2016.

More than 60 res­i­dents at­tended this meet­ing which was about re­de­vel­op­ment of our land for al­ter­na­tive zon­ing, such as light in­dus­trial, spe­cial in­dus­trial or com­mer­cial, and that there would be strong sup­port from in­dus­try and at that time the Bar­nett gov­ern­ment.

At this meet­ing we were in­tro­duced to two town plan­ners who spoke about re­zon­ing. The meet­ing got heated when it be­came very clear that the res­i­dents had no in­ter­est in this.

Mr Oughton states from in­dus­try’s per­spec­tive, the Man­do­galup landown­ers are wel­come to do ex­actly what they are doing now for the next 50 years if they want to.

Our land ti­tle has Mr and Mrs Don­ald on it, not KIC or Al­coa.
