Dear News Of The Area
My husband and I bought a block of land in North Arm Cove about 20 years ago with the hope that one day we could build our little house .
We felt in love with the area and we use to go every summer with our children to look at our land and enjoy the beautiful water views.
We named our land “HOPE”.
We never stopped paying the rates for 20 years and I believe many people still paying like us; and the ones that stopped paying probably became pensioners and cannot afford to pay anymore.
But how much money all the people paid to the council probably for more than 20 years.
I don’t think money is the problem.
We don’t go there every year anymore.
Some times we pay some locals from North Arm Cove to cut the grass in our land.
But I can say the area has deteriorated a lot not only the non urban area but also the urban area it looked really sad.
It is a pity that this council does not recognizer that North Arm Cove has a big potential to develop and create more jobs.
I wrote a nice letter to the Council to ask about the approval of environmental free houses: kit homes with solar energy, rain water tanks, our own sewage but never have a reply.
I hope people doesn’t give up and continuing fighting for something that it is ours.
