Hotel's use of highway and boat launch spaces for parking riles letter writer

I am starting to get the impression that this council is no different than the previous council.

This whole ramp/parking issue is starting to get out of hand, council may have wanted to end this issue quietly But using back room deals where you hand out 90 per cent of the revenue from a publicly-funded project to the hands of private individuals is at the very least shocking if not illegal. Who will pay for the maintenance and insurance? The taxpayers. We have paid enough for this ramp already.

Granting the hotel with 120 rooms and a conference capacity of 400, a permit to go ahead with only 70 parking spaces is absurd (previous council). With the parking on West Coast Road about to disappear because of complaints to the Department of Highways, where on earth will all the convention people park? In the ramp spots.

Having ignored the problem for almost a year is only making the problems more apparent.

By the way, there should be nobody in the roundabout as that’s where a poor driver’s trailer sometimes end up That’s why there are no curbs

I think now is the time for some answers from the people who we voted in on their platform of openness and transparency. Does somebody have to get hurt as vehicles hurl down the highway with trucks and trailers blocking line of sight for those who live close by?
