David & Goliath Battle In The Eastern Suburbs
Ron Rowton’s 93-year-old father has a fight on his hands. The City of Kalamunda have designated his High Wycombe property as “public open space” in the draft Forrestfield North Residential Precinct plans.
These are plans to create a high-density residential precinct close to the planned Forrestfield train station.
There is no time frame for the acquisition by the Council and Mr Rowton’s father is bound to only sell his property to the City of Kalamunda. This house is his father’s only asset and is needed to help get him into smaller premises, closer to family, as he suffers dementia.
Mr Rowton joined Oliver Peterson live in the studio to explain his father’s plight.
