I HEARTILY concur with Mrs Salt’s comments regarding the recent Derwent Valley Council meeting. I am the member of the public who left in disgust at the Council’s attitude towards Councillor Bester’s motions. As a person who chose to retire to New Norfolk from the mainland for its natural beauty and historical significance, I am appalled by the Council’s lack of foresight and seeming inertia in not wanting to preserve Willow Court. I had envisaged New Norfolk being on a par with other towns such as Richmond and Ross but sadly Council seems not to share this vision but wishes to exploit crass commercial opportunities such as the recent McDonald’s acquisition to the township! Wake up – the electorate will only tolerate this vandalism for so long before it takes direct action.
