Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 1st 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 2, 2009 9 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Defeat for 3D scheme SHIREEN KHALIL BURWOOD mayor's push to cre- ate a 3D model of Burwood Town Centre failed, with most council- lors believing it's a waste of money and time. Cr Lesley Furneaux-Cook (pic- tured) put forward a motion at last Tuesday night's Burwood Council meeting to have a 3D model made to allow the com- munity to have a visual under- standing of the town centre plan. The town centre is believed to have buildings erected within the Burwood CBD boundaries of Burwood Park, Park Rd, Meryla St, Belmore St and Conder St. While councillors Ernest Wong and Christine Donayre supported the mayor's motion, saying it was important for all residents to have a clearer idea of how the town centre will look, others strongly opposed. ''How will you model the town centre when you don't know what is going to be built? You may as well draw a big square box of the area,'' Cr John Faker said. The model will cost the coun- cil up to $80,000, which Cr Faker believes is a waste of money. ''This model could even cost more and where is the mayor going to get this money from? ''It's not going to tell you anything and is really a waste of ratepayers' money. ''It's not go- ing to deliver the intention that the coun- cillors are looking for to provide information to residents.'' Cr Furneaux-Cook expressed her disappointment to those councillors voting against the motion, saying it will definitely benefit the community. ''The 3D model will provide a way for residents to look at what they will be getting, which will impact them in the next 100 years -- it's worth spending the money,'' she said. Former mayor Cr Faker said he doesn't believe councillors in support of the model fully under- stand the situation. ''How will you have a 3D model when these sites possibly won't be built -- it just doesn't make sense,'' he said. ''I think those councillors be- lieve it is going to benefit to the community, but I don't think they know in detail what it is going to achieve -- I don't think they understand the situation correctly.''
