VICTORIA ZIARKOWSKI THE new Ashfield Civic Centre is one step closer to becoming a reality. A $12.3 million plan was moved through council with only one objector, the mayor. ''I have not been against the provision of better library ser- vices and better accommo- dation for our staff,'' Mayor Ted Cassidy said. ''As mayor I'm going to sup- port the council, that's my role, but I believe it is a major decision and it should have been one for the next council.'' At least four of the 10 council- lors who voted for the develop- ment will not be standing for re- election in September. But Cr Lance Dale said he had supported the idea for four years and wanted to see it come to fruition. ''My decision to leave council has nothing to do with support for the centre,'' he said. ''I would be supporting it irrespective of whether I stay or go.'' Cr Nick Adams said the devel- opment application was recommended for approval. ''It was a victory for the entire community -- the residents, our staff, everyone,'' he said. Although the development meets the basic requirements identified during community consultation some of the orig- inal plans have been aban- doned. The Health Department didn't commit to the relocation of the early childhood centre, so the new youth centre has also been abandoned. And amenities and many environmentally friendly de- sign elements were cut to bring the development back from esti- mates of $16 million. Council general manager Ken Gainger said the development would address the need for more space in the library and more community meeting space. Indeed 87 per cent of 130 community members and stake- holders approved of the plans for the new civic centre. Now the development will go to tender and come back before a new council which will choose a builder. Today Mostly sunny. Top Temp: 1C Friday Fine. Windy. Top Temp: 20C Saturday Fine.
