    I thought their Masterplan was okay, but did anyone tell you that the council is already ignoring (and I would say subverting) it by approving what is effectively a big box hardware store on the old foundry site?

    What’s more, the back of the big box faces the spare that is proposed to be a new park. Great urban planning there *sarcasm ends*

    Disclaimer: I grew up in Toowoomba, and while I’m generally uninterested in revisiting the place (Brisbane is my home now) I still care about the place.
