|ANNE MARIE WHELAN, HERE SHOWN|
JUMPING AS HIGH AS ORDERED BY
JOHN "CUEBALL" MACKENZIE
Firstly she calls the Marino proposal to expand Redlynch Plaza as "sound" - despite the fact that neighbours to the project, already inundated by a parking shortfall at the centre, have objected to the expansion which doesn't include enough parking, has parking ramps and giant outdoor lights planned a few meters from their rear gardens, and other unneighbourly intrusions on their amenity and life by the Marino family developers. I'm sure the residents in Redlynch aren't happy that a Kewarra Beach busybody like Whelan has decided their amenity should be sacrificed on the altar of over-development. Anne Marie then compares the legally-filed objections by Smithfield and Cairns Central centres, "big corporations" with the Marino family, who she calls "poor locals". If the Marinos are too poor to build this expansion, why are they being allowed to take this risk?
Anne Marie then barfs up her Mackenzie-required diatribe like the good monkey she is. Whelan claims that "Cairns Regional Council appears hell-bent on sending one message - we are closed for business". Hello Anne Marie, you know the revised expansion was APPROVED by council, don't you? No of course you don't, you're too ignorant to even get the facts before opening your pie hole. Councillors did their job, and balanced the need for development with the need for citizens to have their property interests protected, and from degrading their housing investments. This isn't "closed for business", you ignorant cow. This is council doing their job. The fact that other shopping centres are empowered to lodge legal objections is a legitimate area of discussion, but as a State matter it has nothing to do with council. This is just typical John MacKenzie "mudslinging by proxy".
The reality of Cairns Council has been exactly contrary to Ms. Whelan's anti-council script (written by the MacKenzie black hands). Of course we've had a slow economic period - as any longtime Cairns resident knows this is par for the course in Cairns. However as development projects again stirred this time last year, Council acted proactively to encourage the developers by waiving some $4million in council fees to get projects underway - and underway they now are! Housing permits up, commercial projects underway (including the massive Masters project in Portsmith), along with huge government projects at Cairns Base and the Entertainment Precinct.
Whelan was then given 4CA time to spruik her dead pool construction business. Other pool companies are still continually employed as they are installing modern, cost-effective, and energy efficient pools. The pools being installed by M&A Designer Pools P/L are overpriced and unwanted garden albatrosses. Not unlike the owner. Who isn't likely to get any new business when she shows how easily manipulated she is by Cueball MacKenzie.
