Riverside access restored

The popular sightseeing spot at Plenty

PUBLIC access has been restored to the river’s edge at Plenty after a lengthy process. Many were caught unawares about three years ago when a fence went up across the popular area in front of the No 1 Railway Bridge.

What was long presumed to be public open space turned out to have been private property and a new owner exercised his right to fence the land.

Spurred into action following the loss of public access to the river’s edge, the Derwent Valley Council started a compulsory acquisition process that was completed only recently.
