After receiving Adam Crouch’s unsolicited Christmas pamphlet, I nearly choked on my cornflakes when I read that “Terrigal boardwalk was powering ahead”.
The attached photo shows the reality, one week from the Christmas arrival of families seeking a rock pool.
I visited the builders’ website, www.landandmarine.com.au, to leave feedback: pleading with them to alter their timetable; to delay their stainless-steel handrails that Mr Crouch blithely blamed for the hold-up; to admit that they missed their deadline and attach a sandstone fascia to the concrete; to fashion a semblance of a rock pool.
But what does one find on their website?
“Our website is under construction: We’re coming soon!”
Perhaps the Terrigal wall could be graffitied and decorated like the Berlin Wall.
Certainly, the Terrigal Wall is an example of giving a big concrete finger to the locals.
I am not anti-development.
Development is necessary for all things.
But development into what?
