    Hi you say that the reason for the purchase was to stop commercial, however that may not be true what with other business within that area makes me wonder . Didn't some resident address the chambers requesting purchase of this piece of land 1335A North East road because it was unsightly and should be turned it a reserve said that if the reserve . You also said the sale of Mowbray reserve that any surplus will be spent on upgrading of Mowbray res and/or local area improvememnts with mosrt of the reserves around fairview park are natural upgrades will take away the natural look. In 2020 you purchased 1335A land why don't you sell land within the Tea Tree Gully/ Vista suburbs. Have you looked at Bellvue / Mannum reserve or even a part of Vista reserve they are just some. Leave the natural reserves alone
