Contrary Opinion: Bassendean Developments

FURTHER to the letter from Cr Gerry Pule (Consultation was extensive, Eastern Reporter, March 22) in response to Kathryn Hamilton’s letter in the March 8 edition, I think what Kathryn is saying, and indeed what many residents believe, is that it appears the proposed developments on the Swan Districts football oval and other developments in Bassendean are a done deal between government bodies long before any community consultation took place.

It seems the brief consultation was forced upon LandCorp and the council only when word got out about the developments.

If sincere and thorough consultation was made with the residents of Bassendean (the largest stakeholder group), I think you would find that many are against these developments in any shape or form.

JANE COOK, Maylands.
