How can a council with a policy such as their own SG50 be so driven to push thru clearly destructive booze outlets as the one planned at Jshed, people should read this agenda and decide from them selves about the actions of council.
For me reading it, they come across as an addict who will do and say anything to get their next fix. Its booze booze and more booze and no matter what anyone says they will seek some way to justify there addiction, to explain the need for it, any cost is not to much in their need to for fill that urge.
Reading the agenda is quite sad, it does not matter what impact it has on local business, driving out existing operations, no need for parking, concrete over the last remaining bits of greenery to ensure access to their fix. Adding anti-social behaviour is not an issue to be considered as its not relevant? Reading this document it comes across as a desperate drive by an organization to find any reason to justify a drive for councillors need to approve more huge booze barns not the small bars their own policy calls for.
This going ahead just shows councillors clear disregard for rate payers concerns and puts to bed the idea that councillors has any interest in representing rate payers, unless of course its in their own interest 1st.
Anyone looking for reasons why anti-social behaviour is such an issue in Fremantle, our councillors decisions led by our Mayor should be your 1st port of call.
