Killing paradise

A developer fell in love with the beautiful Murrumbidge River Corridor on the border of the ACT and Yass Shire - Now he wants to put 4,500 'affordable homes' on the heights overlooking it!

I am so angry at this greedy, short-sighted fool I could just spit chips! Grrrrrrrr!

Not only will he contribute to the future degradation of this beautiful landscape, the logistics of serving such a density of population remote from the shire centre is ridiculously impractical!  I hope the council reject his proposal but under the current state planning rules they are really going to be up against it!

Beautiful view! Pity, that government people are so damn stupid!

Sadly, that happens pretty much everywhere around here, too.
I hope they don't get to build. Be a shame to hide that view from the everyday person.

Hope you're feeling better, John. Have a good weekend!
