Eastsiders up in arms over Ross Park car park plans

Eastside resident Charlie Carter says locals are up in arms about the Alice Town Council's apparent plans for turning another section of Ross Park into a carpark.
He says there has been no consultation with any of the residents adjacent to the park although the area (see photo above) has already been opened up for cars and sections have been roped off.

But council Director of Technical Services Greg Buxton says discussions "with all parties" – including residents – are under way and the use of the area is, at this stage, only a trial till the end of the season.

This is contested by park user M'Lis Scott who says she took this photo of the car park on the south eastern end of Ross Park on Saturday, June 23 at 12 noon "when soccer and netball was in full swing. I am there every Saturday as my daughter plays soccer at this time." ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
