RE: Private Hospital Plan For Former Clancy Motors Site In CBD (December 4).
This is a great idea for Bathurst. We all need to support it.
But there are a couple of obvious problems:
- The site is constricted and will make it difficult for future expansion.
- Use of that site for that purpose will wreck the ambience and historic feel of the CBD with a six-storey building, and completely disrupt the already poor traffic flow in the area.
Let's do this, but on a site away from the CBD, where the parking and traffic problems can be managed more easily.
There are plenty of options.
Time for this council to grow up, and look beyond the dollars dangled by developers.
This city can do better, and still retain its heritage look, and its ease of access to all our wonderful amenities and resources.
