LABOR’S honoured an election pledge to contribute $1.5million to help buy the Carter family’s wetlands block in Bayswater.
The local council’s also contributing $1.5m to buy the block, which was partially cleared last year as part of preliminary development works on the D’Orazio family-owned site, situated next to Skipper’s Row.
Deborah Bowie from the No Houses in Wetlands campaign says the saga’s “almost” resolved, thanking “the thousands of people who support the campaign”.
They now want to ensure that no cul de sacs are allowed to be built on the wetlands.
The partial clearing undertaken last year was to build two culs de sac on the Carter block.
