Change Peron to class A re­serve

Southern Telegraph - - OPINION - David Rud­man Port Kennedy

I am in to­tal agree­ment with Dawn Jecks’ let­ter ( Save Peron, make it a class A re­serve, 23/ 01).

The land is sup­posed to be pub­lic prop­erty, so how large com­pa­nies can ob­tain it for prac­ti­cally noth­ing is any­body’s guess.

As Dawn quite rightly says, the area needs to be gazetted through leg­is­la­tion as a class A re­serve.

In the mean­time, will there be any more at­tempts by de­vel­op­ers to grab any por­tion of the land to bull­doze and build on?

Af­ter all, given that the pub­licly funded com­pen­sa­tion pack­age is so gen­er­ous, what have they got to lose?
