We paid a visit to the centre of the racecourse (aka ‘The Wasteland’) this afternoon in order to check up on some emails we’ve received regarding the state of the upkeep of this land. What we found confirmed what residents had been saying:

  • Barbecues that had not been cleaned for days or weeks
  • Toilets that were disgusting
  • Weeds everywhere
  • Boardwalk fading and weeds/grasses coming through
  • Dead saplings all over the place
  • And not a soul to be seen at 2.30pm on a gorgeous day!

So much for the ‘Agreement’; so much for proper maintenance, and so much for Council supervision and possible breaches of the Health Act!
