Plant more trees in Bayswater

FURTHER to the article by Lauren Pilat (Town centre revival, Reporter, June 2), regarding the liveability of the historic Bayswater town centre and the proposal to spend $40,000 on another plan.

Put the money into planting trees and making the place pedestrian-friendly, as per the adopted improvement plan of January 1996.

We have been waiting a long time.

If you get the physical aspects right then it will be a lot easier to get the social aspects right (activation strategy).
