Will councillors join our fight for our community?

I would like to thank Rob Burns for his advice about the Open Australia Foundation website (Peninsula News Forum edition 474), it was very helpful and most illuminating.

I have concluded that either our councillors don't read this esteemed paper and therefore don't know of our wishing to retain more of the status quo, or don't intend to join us in our fight to keep our community the way we want it.

I was trying to work out how to bring a bit more pressure to bear when, in the space of 12 hours, all was revealed.

In the Sydney Morning Herald on July 25 was an article concerning a monstrous development at St Leonards in Sydney.

The opponents of the proposal condemned the project as vastly excessive and warned it would place an unacceptable strain on traffic infrastructure and existing public amenities.

Those objections sound very familiar.

The local mayor said she was "happy to take advice" and "We still think St Leonards is a good place to grow our population but if that plan isn't successful we'll take that on board".

Certainly not a win yet for the locals, but at least a start.

On that night, A Current Affair featured a story of local citizens complaining that developments in their area would destroy their village and turn it into a metropolis.

Superman where are you when we want you?
