THEY JUST DON’T GET IT…..or MAYBE THEY DON”T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT.
Allan Holmes, one of the State Planning Commissioners was interviewed by Peter Goers on ABC Radio last week. He was asked about negative community reactions to the proposed Planning and Design Code.
He said……..’There’s an active movement. Whether its huge, I’d dispute that. It’s perhaps a couple of hundred people, and it reflects a certain section of Australian society’
We remind Mr Holmes that:
The launch of the Protect our Heritage Alliance on 17th September attracted 500 people.
An electronic petition against the implementation of the Code has 9,000 signatures.
A more recent hard copy petition has 4,000 signatures.
The ‘certain section of society’ he refers to comprises voters.
It sounds as though Mr Holmes and his fellow Commissioners have their heads in the sand or are whistling in the dark. Or both…..no mean feat… but we are dealing with very accomplished people here.
