Interesting situation for the Aldi,
Personally I’m not in favour of multi nationals wiping out small local businesses. Putting them against Coles or Woollies is a much better scenario.
Now it seems the COF is against the Aldi in Hilton, the question is why? What has changed Brads in general support for Aldi?
Is it that the Aldi is against small business, is it that the residents of Hilton r against the Aldi with a petition?
Or perhaps the Aldi hasn’t prescribed to Mayor Brads Pettitt ideology of his street scape vision, his idea of cheap apartments with no car bays, his idea of high density everywhere, his sustainable whatever next idea? I think Aldi will be making their decisions on sound business practices, not the Mayors ideology
Sadly I doubt the ideas of Hilton residents had any impact, the loss of small business no impact, the idea of another multinational killing off local manufactures/ producers no impact?
Is it all about Brads high density, cheap apartments, 6 star means little, anti-car agenda, big congestion, image that holds sway, or is this what progressive means in Freo?
Change at any cost, whether it’s good for existing residents or not, progression, progress that’s what this council is about for better or worse, no matter what the cost? Maybe the Aldi doesn’t have enough concrete?
Anyway some speculation, should be settled tonight as it goes before planning session at council tonight.
