When I read Byron shire councillor Woods describing a road transport terminal as an ‘unsavoury’ development for Ewingsdale in her comment to Ben Gordon, I breathed a sigh of relief.
I am hoping for her support as my neighbours and I continue in the fight to ensure that such an ‘unsavoury’ development does not end up in Pinegroves Road as is planned by Cr Alan Hunter.
We are certainly not ‘against farmers’ as Cr Hunter laughably claims of the residents of Pinegroves Road. Some of my neighbours are farmers and most come from farming backgrounds, and they are all great people, running businesses that don’t impact their neighbours adversely.
What we are against is for the now deputy mayor overturning the conditions placed on his business by his fellow councillors.
The bigger picture is that we all have a right of quiet enjoyment, and Cr Hunter and his ‘unsavoury’ proposed road transport terminal and storage facility will significantly degrade that for his Pinegroves Road neighbours.
