Tasmanian Nationals position on Willow Court

THANKS to the leader of the Tasmanian Nationals, Craig Davey, for the following statement about Willow Court, which he has provided on behalf of his fellow candidates for Lyons.

"The Tasmanian Nationals believe that the Willow Court historic site is of national and international significance, for both its diverse built history and for the social history associated with the institutionalisation of people with mental illness and intellectual disability.

"The Tasmanian Nationals recognise the potential of this site to be a major tourist attraction that will provide much needed employment in the Derwent Valley.

"The Tasmanian Nationals would like to see support given to the local council in order to fulfil the conservation and restoration project and are happy to lend our support to your campaign to attract second and third year funding of $2 million per annum and fourth and fifth year funding of $750,000 per annum."
