Subtle methods

WHY has the City of Stirling taken the unprecedented step of going beyond its boundaries for a “community consultation” on an unfunded, unfinished boardwalk proposal at South Trigg Beach?

We suggest this is because the City knows that residents oppose this expensive, unnecessary, environmentally damaging eyesore.

The City usually seeks comments by advertising signs on site, letterboxing information and other forms of publicity, when proposing significant developments that would affect the amenity of the surrounding residences.

Not in this case: you would need to have looked very carefully in the local paper to know anything about this 800m boardwalk proposal.

The City has been subtle, to say the least, in its advertising of this proposed development through this unique coastal dune reserve.
