WILL our Council respect what the community wants?
Our community told Council in 2010 and 2015 that we want coastal and bushland reserves managed for future generations to enjoy.
Apparently the City does not have a view how many generations this refers to.
Come on, Council, at the very least the words mean two generations. Many people would think three generations to ensure grandchildren can enjoy Cape Peron as we have.
A previous Chair of the State Planning Commission wrote that Cape Peron is a “treasure which should be carefully planned and managed for all the community ... [and] could be described as a piece of Rottnest on the mainland...”
Six years ago Council voted to support the concept of the Mangles Bay Marina even though onethird of Cape Peron Reserve would have been destroyed. Six councillors just ignored what the community said. Four of those councillors are still in Council today and they are still voting against the community's wish.
Recently, two motions were put to Council to support the preservation of Cape Peron Reserve. Will all our councillors please vote for Cr Stewart's motion on Cape Peron Reserve? JAMES MUMME Shoalwater
