Residents fight on

30 Nov 2010

Residents fight on Image

Montage and Mosaic residents say they have not given up their campaign against the Serrata development, despite the project now being underway.

Spokesperson Frank Ruggiero says the residents are now concentrating their efforts on preserving the remaining land bounded by Bourke St and Geographe St.  He said residents were also still considering a damages suit against Lend Lease for what they say were misleading claims about what was to be built on the Serrata site.

“The residents’ campaign has not concluded even though construction has commenced,” Mr Ruggiero said.  “Part of our strategy was to preserve the remaining land adjacent to the Serrata site.”

“Residents have obtained legal advice that supports and recommends legal action for misleading and deceptive conduct and are currently considering that advice.”

“Regardless of what action the residents elect to adopt, the campaign to preserve the park will continue and we hope that common sense and goodwill by Lend Lease will prevail.  It is not too late for Lend Lease to preserve the remaining land given that it does not have permits for any construction.”
