BCC Chambers - Ongoing debate on Sherwood Bus Depot 27-Oct-2009

Submitted by Leigh Park on Thu, 05/11/2009 - 4:50pm

Question 8

Councillor SUTTON:

Thank you, Madam Chair; I was waiting for Councillor PRENTICE to acknowledge the significant contribution of the State Government on that one, but—

Chairman: Are you going to ask the question?

Councillors interjecting:

Chairman: Order!

Councillor SUTTON: Yes, Madam Chair. My question is to the—Madam Chair, if Councillor PRENTICE would stop yelling over me, I would continue to ask my question.

Chairman: Councillor PRENTICE!

Councillor SUTTON:

Thank you, Madam Chair, for your protection. My question is to the LORD MAYOR. You rushed through the purchase of land through this Chamber for the Sherwood bus depot on 4 August this year without warning. However, the Council files have now revealed that you knew, and your Civic Cabinet was fully aware, that Sherwood was being advocated as the preferred site for the bus depot since at least 13 November 2008.

Why was not this factored into the Sherwood Neighbourhood Planning process, and why was not the neighbourhood planning team informed, and why did you keep this preferred site for the bus depot secret from the residents of Tennyson Ward?

Question 2

Councillor SUTTON:


Thank you, Madam Chair; my question is to the LORD MAYOR.According to a recent instruction to Council staff: the customer is always right. Why, then, are not our customers in the Sherwood area and the local Councillor right in their opposition to the proposed location of the new bus depot? Does your commitment stand that, if there is significant community opposition, you will look for another location, or was that just a hollow promise to string the residents along?
