Iconic Scarborough gets the go ahead

Following the rejection of an initial proposal late last year, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority has given 3 Oceans Property the green light to progress its twin-tower mixed-use development on the corner of West Coast Highway and Scarborough Beach Road.

We all knew that was going to happen; since when has the government done anything the public wants? Just a bunch of greedy buggers. No thought for the people who live there; government not getting my vote at the next election.

A very courageous and completely appropriate decision. Well done all.

Finally, sanity has prevailed. The vast majority are in favour of this sensible development, and those against it are all 80 plus years old and won't be with us for much longer anyway.

Well done 3 Oceans, Scarborough has only recently come alive again after being in a dismal state for 20 years. The local government agency has done a great with the recent developments and this new project will make Scarborough a really fantastic destination for overseas and interstate visitors.
