Latrobe City extends support to Heyfield community
Latrobe City Council mayor, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan has expressed her concern and support for the Heyfield community in the face of Australian Sustainable Hardwoods’ timber discussions with the State Government and VicForests.
By Portal Admin - 20th March 2017 - Back to News"Our thoughts are with the community, the families, the workers, the small businesses, the residents and those who know and love this vibrant rural community," Cr O’Callaghan said.
"We know that this has been an incredibly difficult time and there is nothing that we want more for the Heyfield community than a successful and respectful resolution.
"Heyfield is one of those idyllic communities that Gippsland is famous for - it is warm, generous, proud, determined and dynamic. It is a connected community which will deeply feel the turmoil and disappointment of today.
"We hope that a solution is able to be found and the proud timber heritage of Heyfield can continue to thrive."
