Letter to the Hon. Premier of Western Australia

Freight Rail Facilities in Canning Vale

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

To:  The Premier of Western Australia.

Hon Dr. Geoff Gallop, MLA.

RE: Freight Rail Facilities in Canning Vale.

Dear Geoff,

It just seems like yesterday that you were amongst the concerned people of Canning Vale opposing the introduction of a freight rail facility opposite our homes. We appreciated that help you gave, we again ask you for your assistance in this matter.

It seems that we are to be confronted with yet another attempt to introduce rail freight facilities into Canning Vale opposite our homes. As you stated then, and I would trust you hold the same view today, that families should be considered foremost in all planning matters and not allow them to carry the burden of poor or
inept planning decisions.

We understand that discussions have taken place with Landcorp and land holders in the Canning Vale Industrial estate to open a rail spur to service their proposed facilities. As you can appreciate we do not wish to embark on another campaign to stop such a plan, but we will confront any issue that adversely affects the amenity of our community.

Geoff, I ask you to look into this matter and recommend to Landcorp and the interested parties that they take up the option to locate their operations in the assigned areas of Forrestfield. Land transfers can be negotiated to facilitate the development they require and save the community and the business groups significant time and expense. We expect the business group in question will endeavour to take legal action against our Association again, we do ask that this matter can be resolved quickly and decisively .

Geoff, as this matter if of a critical nature I would appreciate your early intervention and we look forward to hearing from you at your earliest. I can be contacted on 0417 934 197.

Yours sincerely



 Peter Green
