Willow Court security

SECURITY has been upgraded at the Willow Court historic site to protect the property from ongoing vandalism. Derwent Valley Mayor Martyn Evans said funding had been set aside in the new council budget to provide for a comprehensive revamp of security measures including day and night surveillance and the installation of securuity fencing around at-risk buildings.

"It is regrettable that these steps need to be taken but it is unfortunately apparent that there are some elements within our community who care little for heritage properties and therefore we will be ensuring that those people caught within this area will be prosecuted as this type of activity can no longer be tolerated," Mayor Evans said.

Mayor Evans stressed the need to financially cope with future demands on its infrastructure from economic and tourism development continued to provide a challenge for the council.
