Letters to the Editor February 2011

01 Feb 2011

Well done Cobien!

The removal of these trees has been an outrage. I have really struggled with what is going on here. Finding out who is responsible for the surrounding area of Yarra’s Edge is like a thick fog ... just a dim, blurry haze. And with a simple question asked of either VicUrban or City of Melbourne about progress, it’s like pass the parcel at a three-year-old’s birthday party.

Given the amount of revenue generated since inception and ongoing revenue from Yarra’s Edge, wouldn’t it be nice to see a quality indigenous or at least a native landscaping job take place with due thought, care and input from the residents?

We’re not asking to put a man on the moon again – just something we all can be proud of, and be pleasant for everyone to look at and utilise.

I have re-vegetated several coastal properties and this is not a hard site.  And with the type of figures bandied around here, works could be easily undertaken.

I’m sure some of us would be more than willing to assist where possible. Hey, just ask. It’s our front garden too!
