MANNINGHAMCITYCOUNCIL ! GO HAND IN HAND ! WHERE HAS THE MONEY GONE MANNINGHAM; gone west I suppose ?18 February at 13:19 from atlas
WHEN MANNINGHAM CITY COUNCIL APPROVED THE REDEVELOPEMENT OF WESTFIELD SHOPPING TOWN,IT MADE A CONDITION IN THE PLANNING PERMIT,THAT $7MILLION ,had to be paid to council,as COMPENSATION,for the adverse effects shoppingtown was going to have on smaller shopping precsincts in MANNINGHAM .
Council needs to respond to all ratepayers and traders as to where this money has gone.?
We have done some further research on this worthy news item,and now we can disclose this money has not been spent.
ITS GONE INTO GENERAL REVENUE,maybe to pay executive salaries!
Instead of Manningham Council,honouring its side of the agreement,it has instead,charged ratepayers and traders for any improvements and marketing of their SHOPPING CENTRES,however,it must be remembered,that in most things size does matter,and it appears,some Councillors,have managed to assist these centres in other ways.
As the attached photo predicts and depicts,Manningham City Council,does not seem to know which way is up,nor does it know how to clean rubbish bin holders and bins either;this photo was shot in Park Orchards ,outside the POST OFFICE and EMPORIUM;do you think the council cares!
Take a stroll,further down to the shops,and the disgracefull appearance of the garden beds,and the graffiti on the footpaths.
If the MANNINGHAM COUNCIL cannot abide by its own rules,its no wonder the shops in Hoptoun Road,have no reason to comply with its own planning permits.
We approached Manningham City Council today,and spoke to HANNAH,in ENVIROMENTAL PLANNING,regarding enforcement of planning permits,and her response was we only act on wriiten complaints in regards to planning issues,and also she had no knowledge as to the where abouts of the $7MILLION .
IN OUR OPINION,this shows us again the MANAGEMENT,of MANNINGHAM COUNCIL,and all staff,should have their employement terminated,and they should show cause as to why they should be re employed.
