I agree entirely with Anthony Petrolo (Consider other sites for proposed hospital, 12 Dec ), but surely human beings are even more important than flora and fauna?
So … if you must have a hospital, put it where:
a) it is central to the population catchment it is supposed to serve;
b) it is not on an series of intersections which the Environmental Impact Report admits is already “at capacity”;
c) its main approach arteries are not vulnerable to closure from flooding and accident;
d) it will not destroy the character of the surrounding residential suburb.
The Frenchs Forest site fails on all four criteria.
It’s time for Plan B, Brad.
There aren't too many ways available for venting one's anger or frustration at some of the things happening in the world around us. One such escape valve is the good old Letter to the Editor, even if only a small proportion of them gets published. It is often well-nigh impossible to keep the discussion short enough for the newspapers. So rather that have them expire in some Editor's Trash bin, we'll preserve them for posterity here. Inevitably, though, some nuances will be lost for those unfamiliar with the background or the letter or article to which we are responding. But each is undoubtedly a miniature literary masterpiece, though you may find the themes become somewhat repetitive.
