Old Hospital Site (Myilly Point) Draft Proposal
The Northern Territory Government, via the NT PLanning Commission, has at last put together a draft proposal about the OLD HOSPITAL SITE/MYILLY POINT/FLAGSTAFF PARK/KAHLIN.
Unfortunately it proposes that over 60% of the land would be taken up by residential development 'to pay for' making green open space available. Not really appropriate when it is all crown land which we already own, and support through out taxes. I do not know where our government's have got this concept of charging us twice for what is ours, and what has been neglected for years. (The ALP had proposed a 20% to 80% public balance, which was bad enough).
WAY BACK IN 2001, CHIEF MINISTER CLARE MARTIN PROMISED FLAGSTAFF PARK, AT THE END OF MYILLY POINT, TO THE COMMUNITY, BUT IT WAS NEVER IMPLEMENTED.
