Overturn the consent and stop the construction of an Indoor Stadium on Cobham Park.

Petition details

In the current economic climate we believe the council should be exercising fiscal restraint. Our rates were set at pre recession levels and will not be updated for 3 years so we are paying rates on property that will be worth less than the latest RV - we do not want to pay any additional levies to fund such a massive project.

Date declined 6 March 2009
Status Declined

Background information

In addition we have lived in Lyall Bay for 28 years, we both work in the Eastern suburbs - we do not relish the thought of the increased traffic and associated problems that would result from an influx of sports teams/vehicles into an already congested area especially at peak times.
