It hasn’t taken long for the purchaser of the Godfrey’s site in Hawthorn Road to get his application in. Another high rise proposal whilst Council sits on its backside and does nothing about its neighbourhood centres. Residents are already fighting a 9 storey proposal. Now they will have to address this new battle and fork out thousands upon thousands of dollars in fighting the proposal. We place the blame squarely on this council. It is unconscionable that residents must pay the financial price to safeguard their residential amenity all because of council’s incompetence and unwillingness to undertake work that other councils have been doing for well over a decade.
