Bureaucrats target treehouse
The Town of Cambridge's decision to order a Wembley rate payer to dismantle a treehouse on his property has upset neighbours and 6PR's listeners. Paul Murray spoke to Stuart Pether about his treehouse and what listeners have labelled the 'Bully-boy bureaucrats'.
Really, "lighten-up buddy", you didn't honestly build a cubby house in a banksia tree?
Love the story. Tell ya kids to pick a big old well rooted tree in a secluded spot that no one's protecting and keep checking your shed for missing nails and hammers and "things". Well, you know the call. Shhhh..Dellas Friday 3 August, 2012 - 7:49 PM
1km over and 1 point.
I am sick and tired of over educated academics with little else to do, commenting on the working mans lot. The east coast proffesor commenting on W.A. road law really cheeses me of. Just because the "east coast", "New Zealand" or "Europe" as these nanny state laws then perhaps W.A. should adopt them. Honestly, the laws are tough eneough living in W.A. and "we" dont need people who dont even live here suggesting we should copy the laws of other states. I don't care who he is or what his experience is, if he does not live in W.A. then block your ears Paul. Lets not have this put up because some beaurocrat may be listening and want to act on it? Really, get a life!Neal Of Welshpool Tuesday 31 July, 2012 - 8:58 AM
Kids can't "ramble" around anymore. There's too many pedophiles and germs.
Nature is depleted yet protected.
There aren't any trees to climb, or forests to explore and they wouldn't want to mess up their designer cloths, anyway.
Why a cubby-house on the verge in Wembley?
Perhaps some could be built in the trees on the verges in Kenwick and all the paranoids would have all their worst nightmares coming true about the "nutters" swooping on their children on the way to school.
Never mind the magpies. Watch out for those loony-birds between Wembley and Kenwick.Dellas Saturday 28 July, 2012 - 8:41 PM
I love the tree-house! If it was in a park or in a back-yard then fantastic! Heck, I'd be tempted to re-live my youth and scramble up too!
However, this tree-house is not on Stuart's property - it's on Council Land and therefore a Council maintained tree - they have the right to tell Stuart to pull it down.
Please don't bother with the 'I pay my rates' argument - if you divided up your Rates, you would possibly end up having a .001% share of that tree (a twig, if you were lucky! haha)
Sorry dude, I'm backing the Council on this one - it's got to go!Sue Friday 27 July, 2012 - 2:22 PM
We build a cubby in a Banksia tree when I was a kid living in Rossmoyne. One day we had too many people in it, and it, and us, came crashing to the ground. One broken leg, one guy with a nail stuck in his leg, heaps of bruises and scratches. Happy to report, Kneel at 11:36, that everyone made a complete recovery and are still going strong to this day. We still have a laugh about it, and joke about who was carrying the fateful kilos that made it fall apart (even though we know that joke is probably not PC)lighten up buddy Thursday 26 July, 2012 - 1:54 PM
It's nice to hear and see that kids can still be kids doing normal kid things like climbing a tree and playing outside. I can see it could be dangerous if it is a main road with heaps of traffic otherwise I can't see what the problem is. The council can't stop people climbing trees in the street and any child could at any time do that so if they are worried about a law suit, maybe there shouldn't be any trees in any street at all. Good to see a parent letting his kids play normally and not wrap them up in cotton wool.Sheila Thursday 26 July, 2012 - 12:38 PM
