Future residents of 74 Mill Point Road

Media Response 17 November 2016
South Perth Station Precinct

Journalist’s background: I’m writing as a courtesy to let you know that we are planning to running a piece on Wednesday in which several aspiring Lumiere residents say they do not feel they have been treated fairly by the City of South Perth.

They say they are disappointed about the council spending ratepayers’ money to investigate legal options to stop or delay the building of their new home; the proposed amendment 46 changes; and what they say is the council singling out their home for special attention. Specifically, one of the residents said he was encouraged by Mayor Sue Doherty’s remarks about Lumiere at a Property Council function on September 3 last year and signed his binding contract in the weeks that followed those remarks. I’m wondering if Mayor Sue Doherty would care to respond to any or all of the above?

Please attribute the following quotes to City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty.
By September 2015 the local community, specifically those who live on the Mill Point peninsula, had strongly expressed their opposition to the proposed development on 74 Mill Point Rd, South Perth.

At the Property Council meeting on 3 September 2015 I did not comment either in support or opposition of 74 Mill Point Rd. As an invited panel member I spoke broadly about the challenges of balancing the needs of our community’s interests.
