Show me the money...our community is promised many grand things if we allow development in park of our park with one big problem it's to be funded from the development..Seniors Housing is exempt from paying development fees.
But can we rely on developers paying those fees?
Kempt Field in Hurstville is meant to be undergoing a major upgrade paid with the much of the funding coming from a Voluntary Plannin Agreement from the East Quarter Development next door. The developers gained quite a few extra storeys on their development in exchange for $$$ due to be paid in September 2017. Georges River Council has had to take them to court as the developers still haven't coughed up the $$$. The development has been built, is open and Council was at court last week. We do not know the result of the court case yet.
This tale makes us very reluctant to give up any green space in return for developer $$$. #oatley #oatleybowlingclub #communityspaces #kemptfield #vpa #chasinggold
