DO we really want this image of our town portrayed to our visitors? How disgusting! The topic of many tourism operators meetings is how to attract more visitors to the town and convince them to stay more than one night – that is if they are not put off by sights like these.
Who is responsible for control of these illegal signs? If it is the signage committee of the Derwent Valley Council, may I suggest that they implement their powers and do something about it. I recall back in 2006, a new signage policy was discussed, now six years on the situation is even worse – a free-for-all to put any signs up. Cars for sale, boats, and please note that the firewood hotline is not even a local number but an Eastern Shore number.
Comments would be welcome from concerned ratepayers and any other interested parties.
