|Matt Thistlethwaite MP & Ron Hoenig MP talking to local business owners|
It was great to be out and about with our Federal Member for Kingsford Smith, Matt Thistlethwaite MP at Eastlakes Shopping Centre meeting local residents and talking with local businesses. Many people are just too busy during the week to visit our electorate offices, and so it is a great opportunity to listen to our residents concerns or just join them in a coffee. If you like turkish coffee you will not get better than at Eastlakes Shopping Centre.
It is not only residents that are concerned with that disgraceful overdevelopment that is proposed for Eastlakes Shopping Centre. Local businesses who face an uncertain future whilst the local council is before the court to try and stop it from proceeding.
Business's want to know if this disaster proceeds; how long will the shopping centre be closed for during the construction of all these apartment building to be built above the shopping centre? Will they be able to return when the shopping centre is completed? All legitimate questions.
