Willow Court shock

AFTER 10 years in council hands, the Willow Court historic site would be resumed by a re-elected Labor State Government, Lyons Labor MHA David Llewellyn told tonight's election forum at New Norfolk. The shock announcement follows discussions between the council and Premier David Bartlett earlier today. Mr Llewellyn said the government had decided to allow the Derwent Valley Council to keep the disputed $750,000 grant originally intended for Willow Court works, and this could be used for any purpose the council sees fit. Liberal MHA Rene Hidding said his party would work to assist the council develop Willow Court if elected this weekend.

  1. So they can spend the money on 'any purpose the council sees fit'.Does that mean that it doesn't have to be spent on Willow Court or the Barracks? One would hope not.

  2. Wow that is a shock, I do not know what to make of this

  3. This is no shock this is what the so called councillors are doing wakeup rate payers.
