RE: Go-kart track on Mount Panorama.
Mayor Bobby Bourke has refused to consider a compromise that would have resulted in the go-kart track being located within the second circuit at Mount Panorama and with many additional benefits provided free of charge to the kart club.
Mayor Bourke has also said council undertook an extensive cultural heritage assessment that included Aboriginal parties.
Google Bathurst Aboriginal History and select Bathurst Council site that provides a detailed history of the Wiradyuri community in the area.
The history includes the finding of three stone bora rings on Wahluu and the fact the area has been used by the Wiradyuri for initiation and corroborees over thousands of years.
Mayor Bourke has obviously missed this from council's own website.
Mayor Bourke continues to state that environmental impacts and public consultation were taken into account.
