  1. So sagely put BVSRRA. Councillors in the main in my view re just ego maniacs wishing to impress and pump out their chests to their family and immediate associates; and pick up their perks along the way. Also the Council chambers is a starting block for a future role in Politics, either Federal or State, and btw the the stipend doesn't hold back the cause. Any idea of altruism or Community spirit is a ethos long gone by many in my opinion.
  2. Indeed Hardy, these Councils around Australia all have same mo: ignore and proceed. Not Good Enough! But if people sit back and do nothing they will just continue with their arrogance and lack of care!
  3. This is happening all over Australia, State Governments say they are going do something about these untrustworthy local Governments but don't. I fear there is a bigger agenda going on here!
  4. In regards to this 27 Million Dollar spend fest by Bayside Council's ill proposed Netball Complex. Why will Council not disclose the payout figure to existing leasee of the current site who recently resigned a 10 year lease? Surely ratepayers have a right to know!
  5. VIC NEWS Toxic time bomb fears at Sandringham netball development site as EPA steps in The EPA will test for chemical contamination at the site of a multimillion-dollar bayside netball centre, which used to be a landfill tip. Ian Royall, Herald Sun Subscriber only | an hour ago Residents' concerned over Bayside council plan to turn old landfill site into a netball centre. (L-R) Jeffrey Anderson, Andrew Fairbank, Michelle Hartley, John Lyons, David Reinhard, Sarah Reinhard, Liz Reinhard. Picture: Tony Gough MORE IN NEWS Why Chinese tourists are lining up to get into this hospital FEARS of toxic land are threatening to derail plans for a multimillion-dollar netball complex in Melbourne’s suburban sandbelt. The Environment Protection Authority is to test for chemical contamination on the Sandringham golf driving range which was formerly a landfill site. Bayside council wants to build a development of two indoor and nine outdoor netball courts at a cost of up to $26 million to deal with the shortage of playing surfaces for netballers in the area. The EPA has also demanded to see the council’s own soil tests amid concerns of contamination on the land on Wangara Rd. Residents fear rubbish from the former Dunlop battery factory and other lethal chemicals may have been dumped in the site before the landfill operation was closed. The Sunday Herald Sun believes lethal pesticides Dieldren and Dieldrex was sprayed in areas around what is now Merindah Park to counter an outbreak of Argentine ants over several years until 1971. The area was cleaned up by the EPA about 15 years ago. But it is feared that some pesticide containers may have been thrown in the landfill site. EPA chief executive Cathy Wilkinson said the authority has requested more information from the council about its contamination testing methods and results at the site. Aerial view of the Sandringham Driving Range where Bayside Council is to build several netball courts. Pic: Google “The site is on a closed landfill and also adjoins former heavy industry. “Concerned community members have been in contact with EPA worried there could be lingering health issues from legacy contamination.’’ EPA officers have already started preliminary testing. Bayside director of environment, recreation and infrastructure Steven White said the council has undertaken a range of site testing at the proposed Bayside Netball Centre. “(Council) is continuing to work closely with the EPA to establish how the netball centre design can address any site concerns.’’ “Council is currently advocating for the Victorian Government to allocate funding to the project.’’ Residents’ spokesman John Lyons said the council had shown total disregard for the community. “We’re not against kids’ sport but we do have concerns about the process and how the testing has been conducted,’’ he said. Prime Minister Scott Morrison promised $4.7 million of federal money in March and the council is lobbying the state government to match that amount. But Mr Lyons questioned the council’s budget for the project. “Bayside just seems to think money will fall from the sky.’’ The Sandringham Driving Range is to be replaced with a netball centre. Picture: Tony Gough The council also faces a potentially legal fight with one of the sublessors of the site. Pureform golf club custom fitting centre had a lease until 2023 but the council had abandoned the business, according to general manager Jeffrey Anderson. The main tenant, the driving range, has had its lease paid out but not Pureform. “The council has just pulled the rug out from under us,’’ Mr Anderson said. The matter is to go to legal mediation this month. @IanRoyall [email protected]
  6. Very angry about our Bayside Council. This proposed netball complex in Sandringham that has been plowed ahead with no consultation with neighbours is just wrong. This Council is just plain arrogant and have just blown many Thousands of Dollars on a project that is ill conceived and inappropriate. And it won't be the last! It's time to rally around and make these people accountable.
