I shall send a complimentary email to the two councillors who voted against the massive development. I shall only deal will my local ward member, who voted in favour, in a cursory and demanding manner. Duplicitous
Should I happen to be forced to visit the new development, and I have no doubt it will be popular, bringing the outer burbs to the inner burbs, it is not the St Kilda that I liked and remember.
I need to focus back to subsidising my council rates. Parking fees, parking fines, chairs on street costs, rates for such a huge development.
I was on a tram today going around St Kilda Upper Esplanade and I looked and I could see why people are protesting about views.
Later update. I just learnt today that come next election, St Kilda Road and Queens Road will have their own council ward, imaginatively named, Junction Ward. So my local councillor will not be dependant on my vote next election.
Am I feeling impressed by local democracy in action? You can guess.
