A Blast from the Past.
At the council meeting, protest organiser and Edgewater resident Ziggi Murphy said she moved to the area in 2008 so her family could live in a leafy, quiet suburb with a spacious garden, parks and a lake.
“I did not choose to live in a housing opportunity area and I never would because I can see the awful consequences of putting huge amounts of people into small pockets of only 10 suburbs,” she said.
“This choice was made for me and my neighbours who were sold the story of subdivision.
“We’re now forced to live in fear of living next door to vast amounts of development including apartment blocks.”
