W Boyle, Main Arm.
Why is the Council so relentlessly pursuing the oppressive E3 zonings in Main Arm?
Over the past forty years we have reafforested this valley without Council’s assistance. So why lock up our land under these poorly conceived laws?
Whose idea was this? We certainly didn’t vote for it. To protect regrowth forest by removing our right to freely manage it is plain dangerous.
Our roads and bridges are in a pitiful condition, and the fire trails on the northern side of the valley have not been maintained for decades – so when there is a major fire the fire brigades won’t be able to protect us – while Council is spending significant money on implementing these poorly conceived laws.
If you’re going to forcefully create a massive firetrap – make sure we are safe! This appears to be a politically oppressive exercise to justify the existence of even more bureaucrats. Basically very poor science. Leave us alone, Council – or fix the infrastructure first. When lives and homes are lost, the blood will be on Council’s hands.
