This is the personal blog of Ian Ker, who was Councillor for the South Ward of the Town of Vincent from 1995 to 2009. I have been a resident of this area since 1985. This blog was originally conceived as a way of letting residents of Vincent know what I have been doing and sharing thoughts on important issues. I can now use it to sound off about things that concern me.

If you want to contact me, my e-mail is still or post a comment on this blog.

David Slays Goliath - Again

South Perth residents have succeeded in blocking a 29-storey tower approved by the Development Assessment Panel.

Alannah MacTiernan, former WA Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, supports the DAP system, as a means of balancing strategic and local interests, but she acknowledges that the DAPs have severe problems

Time for the DAPs to be reigned in. They have become a law unto themselves, ignoring local town planning schemes and local communities in favour of development interests.
