…. I may need to avail myself of optical protection in the form of darkened lenses supported in a frame.
Well, wasn’t Sunshine the talk of Melbourne last Friday? By the time I woke up, I had four messages alerting me to an article by Jason Dowling in The Age.
The article is about a soon-to-be-released metropolitan planning strategy that will encourage huge government and private-sector investment in Sunshine, making it the key growth centre in Melbourne’s west.
RMIT planning expert Professor Michael Buxton notes the past 30 years of lop-sided growth to Melbourne’s East and South East and that growth in the West has been predominantly on the city’s fringe. ”Sunshine has been crying out as an obvious choice for a major node … it’s the equivalent of Caulfield in distance, from memory, from the CBD …”. He calls for government investment in Sunshine as it is “time for Melbourne to embrace the west”.
The online version includes a video of vox-pops with locals, many of whom are keen for jobs in the area to increase. Love the guy who notes the importance of respecting the heritage when developing!
Can’t tell you how nice it is to read a positive media story about Sunshine!
