Recently we were told that “RNS hospital set to shrink as government eyes off land”. How can the public protect crown land from rapacious governments? And how are governments allowed to “acquire” land owned by the people? Is there some way to stop this stealthy acquisition by any covenant or other before every bit of public land including parks and hospital grounds is taken over and sold to make money for governments? What next? Any land considered surplus to requirements around schools? Or the lovely little reserve or park near your home? Is anything safe?
