Bottomless legal pit

I AM impressed that The Toodyay Herald is investigating the amount our shire spends on legal costs. 

I had a planning issue once, a simple subdivision, or so I thought.


Why suddenly axe park trees?

Stirling Park trees axed because of termites.

THE DAY after last month’s Toodyay Farmers Market, our shire council removed three trees in Stirling Park which were considered dangerous and termite-affected. 

There were no barricades around the trees on market day and, as is normal, sellers set up and visitors walked under the trees. 

Did the trees become dangerous over night?


As if nobody would notice

I AM DISTRESSED once more by the indifference of the shire to our greatest asset, the natural environment. 

Particularly worrying is the latest destruction in Stirling Park of a peaceful shady setting where many local and tourist oriented outdoor events such as the Sunday Farmers Market, the International Food festival and the Fibre Festival are held.


Clearing by stealth

AS ONE of the many local residents who love living in the Shire of Toodyay surrounded by farms, wildlife and bush it is disturbing to see landowners pushing old dead trees up against healthy living ones and then setting them alight which ultimately kills the healthy tree. 


No news not good news

MAY I say that I was extremely disappointed to find no information from the shire in the centre pages of last month’s Toodyay Herald. 

How are we to be kept informed about the things that are happening here?
