Heritage & Concrete

Heard today that the Victor Harbor Council in South Australia has passed a redevelopment plan for a local hotel to be revamped and turned into a nine story monolith (my word).
This new building will be totally out of character with the existing built environment and goes beyond the Council’s own rules. No problem says the CEO. Every proposal is dealt with on its own ‘merit’.
Clearly- thus- rules ain’t rules for developers but rules are rules for ordinary ratepayers. Welcome to Victor Harbor folks.

I love poetry, writing, especially writing as healing, as touching the sacred, being touched. And place, places dreaming us, us them. Coasts, rivers, canyons; the ordinary things too, the small things, gestures that reach out.
