If it ever gets built, Slessor Square will be the highest and most intrusive development to blight our town.

Yet the Slessors refuse to carry out a so-called viewshed analysis to give people an idea of what their giant development will look like from key vantage points around town.


What have they got to hide?

Ward 4 councillor, Tom Hempen, tells me the Town’s planners have asked the developers

to provide a visual representation from public vantage points (not back yards) of what the sky-line would look like with the proposed buildings in the landscape.

The planners estimate the viewshed would cost around $30,000.

If the Slessors are so proud of their monster development, why don’t they get one done?
