  1. Geez, it’s a fair call, though I am pretty peeved off by the loss of rural amenity and the creeping installation of blinkin’ roundabouts on the coast road (don’t even think about cruising along gazing out to the ocean anymore!)…
    As the great bastion of the local council white-shoe brigade Bill Heslop said about Porpoise Spit “Yer can’t stop Progress” ….

  2. I have no idea what the story said, but is its removal related to the drop in asking prices for the ‘All houses’ category in postcode 2478 from $1.6million in April 2022 to $1.1m in August 2022 on the SQMResearch Asking Property Prices web page. If the price drops another $500k, then prices in Lennox may be close to being fairly priced. Looks like the smart money has got out early.
