A ‘ work­ing group’ when it’s all been worked out?

Southern Telegraph - - OPINION -

It is al­ways good news, as re­ported in the Sound Tele­graph on Jan­uary 16, when our Gov­ern­ment thinks kindly of Cape Peron, and con­grat­u­la­tions to the City of Rock­ing­ham for push­ing the is­sue with the plan­ning min­is­ter — but “a work­ing group”?

How long will that take? How long be­fore this work­ing group ar­rives at what has al­ready been worked out?

It is un­der­stood there’s a process to fol­low with this kind of stuff, but this smells of pro­cras­ti­na­tion.

Is it re­ally an initiative or a code for do­ing noth­ing?

Al­ready on the shelf sits a well- re­searched coastal park blue­print by Hands Off Point Peron. All the WA Gov­ern­ment has to do is grab it, cost it, fund it and im­ple­ment it. Easy.

No need to string it out while the area re­mains the wasted op­por­tu­nity it has been for a gen­er­a­tion. Jarl Andersen, Shoal­wa­ter
