RE: "Professor urges Bathurst to be bold in managing urban growth", September 9; "You can get all the high rise you want in Sydney", letter, October 8.
There are many people who do not want a backyard but want to live in a country city within close proximity to services and have a view.
That said, this means high rise, like in all other cities around the world, will be in the CBD so those with their quarter acre blocks in the surrounding suburbs will not be in any way affected.
Bathurst is blessed with some great viewing aspects and as we move into the future we should transition into a modern city with a variety of accommodation options.
Those against high-rise within the CBD of Bathurst are simply against any progress.
