I’m putting the blogging into use. So much is getting knocked down around us and the battles to reduce the impact are so draining, unproductive and fragmented that I’ve decided on a course of community building action.
A blog space for all the local residents to complain about the crap developments and to find out who has fought what, where and how. DarleyDevelopments.blogspot.com
It’s a small suburb. The same developer that did the really shoddy work down one end of the street is starting afresh up the other. The people behind us who shouldn’t have let our place be surveyed by the development we’re fighting, didn’t realise it wasn’t their surveyor cause they’re having work done.
In Marrickville, it’s customary to throw a party when your plans go to council, celebrating your family extension! There’s a different flavour here. All the good big houses are getting bought, knocked down and turned into tiny ghettos by developers who DON’T LIVE HERE!
