Although I am very relieved that these centres are not in my own street, I have taken a step forward to help the families who are directly involved.
What the Government has done here I find disgusting and sad in the fact that all this has been signed, sealed and almost delivered without any consultation with the council or residents who will be directly affected.
I believe the centres need to be built, but why does it have to be done so close together smack bang in the middle of schools, residents and day care centres?
Other sites were rejected because they were too close to schools and houses (what is wrong with this picture?)
One of the suggested sites was in the minister’s electorate (this one was rejected), another was close to one of her family members (this one was rejected)’
