Quotes

"Depreciation is, put crudely, the amount a council needs to set aside each year to renew existing infrastructure and other capital items. Poor accounting for depreciation affects priorities in public spending, the allocation of grants by other levels of government and the underlying assessment of the financial sustainability of councils. It is important to get the figure right."
"We, the undersigned, strongly object to this development for a number of reasons including (but not exclusively) the density, character and appearance of the proposed development, the traffic impact, access implications, the pollution, increased flood risk, loss of privacy, and the noise and disturbance caused by the building process."
"A commercial bar and restaurant operation in the citycity centre is capable of being acceptable in the citycity centre subject to appropriate control over noise, kitchen extract and servicing arrangements. Such uses operate in many locations throughout the citycity centre, even below or adjacent to residential uses. A new building also gives the opportunity to build in the necessary sound-insulation measures from the start."
"The private sector is great at this stuff. Just look at Icebergs at Bondi and the kiosks at Merewether and Bar Beach. Let's see what ideas come forward to enhance our beach experience and our city."
