I am surprised that the announcement of the massive extension to the Chadstone shopping mall remains unchallenged in the press. Besides a couple of stories on December 22 it’s been very quiet yet many small businesses in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne face a significant impact as a result of the development. When I heard the news I expected a wave of protests. Maybe people don’t care or maybe they don’t understand the implications of a giant shopping mall growing by another 50%.
