Rival Petitions are battling it out on the Internet!
Today we’ve found the counter petition.
The ‘against it’ argument:
Minister Corbell’s planned 15 storey high rise, high density building redevelopment along Cooyong St and Ainslie Ave in Reid must NOT be allowed to proceed.
The suburb of Reid is NOT now part of the City Centre as stated by Minister Corbell on May 29 at the Committee Hearing for DV 308 (Cooyong St Urban Renewal Area).
High rise residential with associated commercial development should NOT be allowed to encroach on Reid which is a leafy garden suburb with many heritage homes.
I request that the proposed redevelopment in Reid be redesigned in sympathy with nearby residential housing AND with an 8 storey height maximum. Retail development should not be included.
The ‘for it’ argument:
The title says it all: there is a petition on this site objecting to high rise development in Reid. For those of us who think that a modern city needs higher density in order to improve environmental outcomes (less footprint, better transport, less water and heating use etc.) then please sign this petition.
For those of us who feel that fifteen storeys or more are appropriate, sign the petition.
For those of us who just plain can’t stand NIMBYISM, sign the petition!
