This vacant State Government owned land at the corner of Le Geyt St and Gennon Street in Windsor has recently been marked with survey pegs. Councillor David McLachlan (Hamilton Ward) and I were alerted by some concerned local residents. There are some concerns that this flood prone land will be sold for a housing development which will require a substantial amount of fill to lift construction out of the flood risk zone.
We're both unsure what's going on with this parcel of land. It looks like Minister Mark Bailey and his Department of Transport and Main Roads want to put in some kind of housing development. Councillor McLachlan and I think this land should be transformed into a park or recreational area the Windsor community can utilise and enjoy.
Let us both know how you think this land could be better used, and what it should look like.
Your opinion matters and Councillor McLachlan and I are very keen to hear what you have to say.
If you have any more information about these mysterious survey markers, don't hesitate to leave us a message here.
