The Shaws were part of the consultation process that decided where the future road was going to be.
They supported a road in this area in their submissions on a structure plan in 2007, and in 2014 wrote to the Council as part of their submission on the road, congratulating the project for its foresight. The Shaws submission noted this section of the road cut through their property and requested Council look at compensation and an underpass. Council is continuing to attempt to negotiate on these aspects.
The agreed route for the road crosses two sections of the property and avoids the majority of the ponds and planting.
