Ri Fraser, Ocean Shores 

I object to that horrible megalith erected on the Ewingsdale Rd/Bayshore Dr roundabout.

This does not represent anything about our community. It is metallic, harsh, urban, phallic, invasive, huge, inappropriate, and an offensive waste of our money.

It massively detracts from the view we always enjoyed of heading towards the distant lighthouse nestled amongst deep green trees on the headland.

Please remove it – I’d happily pay extra for that to happen. If the community were consulted we would’ve suggested a grove of native trees or something organic like a low-lying timber sculpture or rocks.
