Bussy

New Wonderland Article(s)

6 posts in this topic

I found these articles in the local News Limited newspapers (Penrith Press and Mt Druitt Standard). The articles are both pretty much the same just with a little bit different towards the end. "The Bus is now leaving for Newspaper Creek, NSW"

Pfft what do they think, that those signs were there from the start? I don't think so. They were both added only a few years ago and are certainly not 'historical'. Particularly the sign with the blue logo, it's no more than a couple of years old. I remember it was only in the last year of the park being open that the Hulk and Spiderman cutouts were added to the sign. And if the councillor is so concerned about the removal and sale of the signs from the park due to what Wonderland meant to so many people then why on earth did they allow Sunway to sell and demolish the entire park in the first place? What a joke

Because I could Gazza, and you can do it to just take any picture, edit it and and a c in a circle and your done, no problem at all. GoGoBoy there is no way a local council (or state governemt) can stop a company deciding to sell up. That's like the RTA telling you that you can't sell your car because it doesn't suit them. "The Bus is now leaving for Blacktown Council, NSW"

That's probably true Bussy BUT the council should have made a way bigger deal of it all when the park first announced the closure. Instead they wait until some worthless sign is sold and THEN say what a terrible loss. Sunway got away with it all scot free and with hardly any bad press

The Council can't stop them selling but they can very easily not rezone the land for industrial development. This would have made the land no where near valuable enough for resale and would have resulted in the park having to be sold as is. It's the same thing you see with a lot of councils, no different to the Peppermint Park saga in Port Macquarie years ago when that park was sold off to development.
