Bass Coast Shire stuffing up again

It is always a problem looking at the way services are delivered to ratepayers but Bass Coast Shire has to be one of the most pathetic community adminstrators in Australia.
There are a heap of problems, but one is the 'maintainance' of roadsides. Stanley Road, in Grantville is a great example. After various surveys, it was designated as one of the most significant roadsides in the Shire. But Council allowed a contractor to slash and destroy a swath of native vegetation on both sides of the road without any consultation with adjoining lanholders.
The result is a continuing fire hazard and a loss of habitat for Blue Wrens and a variety of other species.
