Govt to Strip Planning Decision - Also Taking Locals Cash (Pt 3)

In Part 3 of the WA Government stripping planning laws for local Councils and amalgamations Max Hipkins, who is also Mayor of Nedlands, speaks of the negative impacts on the community.

In his video presentation from November 2012 at the Western Suburbs Alliance forum Hipkins highlights the following:

  • Councils turned into political training grounds
  • Councils becoming politically influenced.
  • Asset striping by the WA Government during Council amalgamations
  • Density issues of communities
  • Loss of community character and buildings

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
