Greens push to save historic Willow Grove Cottage

Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by David Shoebridge, Greens MP in the NSW Legislative Council, who slams Arts Minister Don Harwin for claiming the government will be “relocating’’ the historic Italianette villa Willow Grove and “faithfully reassembling’’ it into a better condition.

Mr Shoebridge blasted Mr Harwin, saying there was no planning approval to rebuild Willow Grove because “you bloody don’t know where you want to do it’’ and relocation was a poor heritage outcome.

He also points out that the 188 conditions of consent approved by the Department of Planning did not explicitly guarantee the rebuilding of Willow Grove

The state government is ignoring Parramatta’s heritage and Mr Harwin is yet to provide details about the exact site it would be relocated, says Mr Shoebridge.
