Re: Alan Fletcher Research Station, Sherwood
I am writing to you regarding the maintenance and future use of the Alan Fletcher Research Station, Magazine Street, Sherwood.
Neighbouring residents have reported to me that the Alan Fletcher Research Station site has fallen into disrepair following the relocation of DPI staff to the new Boggo Road Eco Science Precinct. Residents report neglect includes famaged tents and buildings, mould, overgrown grass and concerns about rodents and snakes.
I seek your urgent attention to the maintenance problem and ask that the Department cleans up and maintains this site in good order.
Further, I seek your advice as to the State Government's intentions for the future use of this site. Specifically, is it the State Government's intention to sell this site off for development, and if so what is the time frame?
I look forward to your early reply.
Councillor for Tennyson
