Comment on Master plan could turn around population and economic slump by Fred the Philistine.

We need to have industry and not the Federal and Territory handout industry which we currently have. Many have taken advantage of this and have become very rich.
No one wants to fix or solve the economic or social issues if thus town, because of the moneys and jobs it creates.
Why would any one want to come and live in a welfare town if it were not for work. They come make their money and leave.
Housing is ridiculously expensive not to mention the rent. Why would you not want to live in a more prosperous state like Victoria, where there us cheaper housing, cleaner, and prosperous.
We need more car parking in the CBD. We need police who do real policing and not just baby sitters for our Indigenous.
We need real industry! Such as a solar panel manufacturing plant. We have the sun.
These problems have been ongoing for over 40 years and as far as I can see, nothing has been achieved to them. All talk no action. If you are going to write a plan for the town, you need to take it seriously and place action behind it.
