Town of Victoria Park

Town of Victoria Park gives free kick to slumlords.

• the Council is turning a blind eye to proliferation of illegal boarding houses in area
• we have been trying to get an illegal boarding house shut down since 2007
• been a total lack of will on part of the council officials and majority of elected members to effectively deal with a range of problems created by these premises
• even ignored submission to amend Town Planning Scheme and or have the property rezoned
• recently council resolved to do nothing and offered no solution


Local Government Act should be changed so all boarding houses are registered. Inspect them just like brothels. Shut down the offenders and limit the number so areas around these places don't become ghetto's.

Local councils cant close illegal will they close illegal boarding houses? With or without government support the law is slanted in favour of entrepreneurs - always.
