C3 Church Auditorium, 95A Waratah Avenue, Dalkeith
You don’t need to be a town planner to know that . . .
- Perth is a sprawling dysfunctional city with growing traffic problems and known as Australia’s least sustainable capital city
- The new state planning laws and undemocratic, secretive DAPs cut councils and communities out of the planning process
- The State Government’s high-density, high-rise infill ideology and unrelenting pressure from developers are destroying our suburbs and lifestyle.
You don’t need to be an environmentalist to know that . . .
- Our unique bushland and leafy suburbs are under threat from population growth, economic development and greed
- The quality of our natural environment is directly related to our quality of life. It is central to our health, wealth and happiness
- We need a fresh approach to managing, using and protecting what is WA’s greatest heritage – our natural environment.
You don’t need to be a financial wizard to know that . . .
- During the most profitable years in WA’s history, the State Debt has risen from $3.6billion to $17 billion or by 460 percent
- The money has been spent on questionable projects, not improving public infrastructure that the City needs
- The state’s AAA-credit rating is close to being sorely tested. It will be the taxpayers who have to pay for the Government’s profligacy.
But hear the experts and have your say. We all know there are better alternatives . . .
