In Brief CAR PARK IN DOUBT A lack of funds could stop a proposed temporary car park on the old Smith St nursery site from going ahead. The LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board is trying to find funds to create a temporary car park on the Smith St site opposite Linwood Park for people to use during the rugby league season. Councillor Yani Johanson said there was a need for parking in the winter as the street is often crowded and can be a danger to people crossing it. ALDER TREE FACES AXE The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has approved the removal of an alder tree outside 18 Claymore St after a resident wrote to the board saying brown, rusty stains were left on her property after it rained. Board chairwoman Sally Buck said the board recommended its removal and are wanting to know about the effects other alder trees are having in the area. LEASE GRANTED The Huntsbury Community Centre has had its 35-year lease granted by the SpreydonCashmere Community Board. The board approved the lease for the community centre to remain at the 30F Huntsbury Ave last week.
