AOB
Totterdown Centre – TRESA has registered its concern officially with the Council. John has spoken to Jenny Smith at the Womens Workshop. Apparently one major issue is the presence of the tenant Rob Ferranti. The property is owned by him, the Womens Workshop, the owners of the former Wong Tai Sin, and another group. It was agreed that TRESA would offer to help them as far as possible to move matters forward.
