The CT brings word the usual suspects are taking EVERYONE to court over Simon Corbell’s approval of the Giralang shops redevelopment. And this may add 2 years to a process that’s already taken 7.
Personally I think this is astonishing. For once the planning minister has said this nonsense has gone on far too long and has made a decision. Yet those opposed still get their way – indefinite delays – via the legal system.
As a Giralang resident the size or brand of the shops is the least of my worries. People of the area who are opposed to this – and I’m talking genuine Giralang and Kaleen residents who do not have a commercial interest – need to step back and have a look at the bigger picture. No development is going to satisfy 100% of people. So after 7 or 9 years are you happy for the business interests to keep fighting it out until the proposal is perfect in your eyes, or do you actually want some facilities in the suburb sometime in the foreseeable future??
