Sympathetic Portrayal

Many images of the township fail to show the full scope and commercial aspect of the township. The image shown on the right is an example of how the town is portrayed from the sympathetic lens of a protest supporter. It emphasises the “country” feel of the town without showing the full commercial nature of the main shopping strip of Tecoma!

However seen below, we have an image that gives a better impression of the main shopping precinct of Tecoma!

Now, lets look at an overhead representation (seen below) of the township of Tecoma. Within the YELLOW lines is the area as shown in the first image. Then we have the areas within the RED lines which represents the majority of the area covered by commercial premises. There are several isolated businesses along both sides of Burwood Highway that are not individually marked. The area within the GREEN lines is Tecoma Primary School. Some would have you believe that the school is in immediate impact of the proposed site, but as can be seen, it is removed from the site and not DIRECTLY opposite as some would claim.
