I took these photos this morning. This is Willison’s Farm which used to belong to my cousin Bruce Willison. Had a very good meeting this morning with Councillor Todd Hacking, Dane Wilden, Carole Simmonds (President of the Tea Tree Gully Historical Society and Lesley Purdom (former Mayor of Tea Tree Gully) and a reporter from the Messenger newspaper. I’m looking forward to reading his article. Lesley was Mayor of Tea Tree Gully when Bruce Willison sold the property to the council. She told us that he chose to sell it to council rather than a developer because he wanted it to be community land and not be used for housing.
I totally support Cnr Todd’s motion which goes before Council Tuesday night that the land be rezoned from operational land to community land and am praying that this will go ahead!!
