The Financial Impact of a New Facility

In the forum below we want to hear your thoughts on the financial impact of a new development and whether this is an acceptable cost for ratepayers and residents. It is expected that a new facility will cost an extra $200 per property, every year for the next 20 years. We would like you to consider this regardless of whether you are a property owner or renting as the cost is likely to be passed through from landlords.

  • Be nice to each other. We are all here to contribute and converse so please be kind and respect others and their ideas.
