Sneaky Stanhope gathers the data to stymie graveyard NIMBYS

By johnboy - 1 April 2009 127

Our Chiefly Leader, obviously chuffed with how he lined up the ducks on ‘roo culling (and with good reason), is seeing if he can repeat the trick with the proposal for the much needed new cemetary.

    Community consultation on the proposed southern cemetery commenced this week with a random telephone survey of 1,000 residents, Chief Minister and Minister for Territory and Municipal Services Jon Stanhope said today.

    A community survey is also available online, in ACT public libraries and Canberra Connect Shopfronts.

    The proposal for the cemetery on Mugga Lane was put forward by the ACT Public Cemeteries Authority. Canberra’s only southern cemetery in Woden is expected to reach capacity within ten years.

    Over the past month the ACT Public Cemeteries Authority and ACT Government have invited stakeholders to provide input to the consultation program. Plans are also underway for a series of information sessions, stakeholder meetings, information displays and a letterbox drop to locals.

    Following the first round of consultation a discussion paper will be released for comment.

If you don’t trust the telephone survey to get your opinion across you can take the survey online.

What’s Your opinion?

Typing “zombies’ into the Facebook search engine gets you in excess of 500 hits. You can even gift “pet” zombies to your friends.

That’s just lovely! It’s like the “good old days” when people thought giving kids Gollywogs was appropriate! For shame.

I heard that people used to eat golliwogs.

Sounds like a sure sign of zombie tendancies if you ask me.

Some googling has shown that the NZIMBY movement has sprung up in other parts of the world previously.

Gosh – who would have thunk it!!!

I also would like to know how to sign up for NZIMBY membership. And do you have a Facebook group?

I get it now, thanks BerraBoy68 & chewy14 – someone’s gotta lose out.

Thumper: they’re going to be bloody fast zombies, riding bare-back on all the culled kangaroos.

What about zombies on our roads – will the Government have to build additional Z2 transit lanes for vehicles with two or more zombies or will they be able to use the existing T2 lanes?

I was going to propose special buses for our Zombie bretheran too, but I walked through Civic interchange at lunchtime and think ACTION already have it covered.

Hahahaha! No facebook group yet Granny, but a terrific idea 🙂
