Milton Hainsworth, Myocum

A few minutes ago I got down on my knees to read a message on an A4 sized piece of paper, clamped by cable ties, and attached to a stick about 300mm high that has been hammered into the nature strip on Manse Road, Myocum. This is the road to the tip. I expected the message to ask whether anybody had found their pussy but was gobsmacked to see that it told me that NBN was going to erect a 35m high transmission mast, and associated technical buildings, to radiate wireless broadband from a structure to be built on Lot 95 Manse Road. If anybody was interested to contact someone at an address in Victoria.

This is not an April Fool’s joke. They are serious in going ahead to spoil a lovely landscape and fry anyone living near this monstrosity. A 35 metre-high microwave.

Is this how the government in the shape of NBN treats locals? There has been no DA asked for from council so I expect they can do just what they like. I am also serious in saying that I had to kneel down in the grass to read it.
