Get rid of it

It is time the ugly, unsafe jetty in the centre of Victoria Harbour at Docklands was removed as agreed to last year. The waterway must be opened up for the vista and for the development of a lively boating place. 

The silly talk of bringing more activity and glitz to Docklands is not what we want. It is a peaceful haven in the city and the very reason we love it here.

We are horrified by the Minister changing the two-storey limit on buildings along Victoria Harbour by the library. These towers should never be built. Why close everything in and use every space? Not all land has to be sold off and built on.

A wise team of people should be given the power of decision-making rather than one person.

It is also time to open up the walkway along the water from NewQuay Promenade to Ron Barassi Snr Park.
