Willow Court committee finalised

THE final makeup of the Willow Court Conservation Special Committee was ratified at the last meeting of the Derwent Valley Council, confirming the members who had been selected by the independent chairman, David Llewellyn. In a report, general manager Stephen Mackey said some members had been in place early and Mr Llewellyn had since recruited further expert committee members.

"The committee had previously agreed to appoint one person from either the Friends of Frescati or Friends of Willow Court to be the community representative and at the committee meeting on the 9th August 2012 a nomination from the Friends of Willow Court Ms Anne McKinstray was appointed with the nomination from the Friends of Frescati Mr Richard Onn being appointed proxy," Mr Mackey said in his report.

The council agreed to the following list of members for the Willow Court Conservation Special Committee:
  • David Llewellyn (Chairman)
  • Martyn Evans (proxy - Barry Lathey)
  • Dianne Snowden (ex-officio member)
  • Michele Moseley (DPIPWE)
  • Paul Lan (Architect)
  • Tony Wright (Inland Fisheries Service)
  • Jane Harrington (Port Arthur)
  • Anne McKinstray (proxy - Richard Onn)


  1. Congrats to everyone who was successful, we are hoping for big things to come from this group!!

    However correct me if I'm wrong but according to the minutes on the DVC website etc the friends of Willow Court wasn't even formed when nominations were called for, it was still the old committee. How does this work???

  2. Fair point I'm not sure. Was Anne an official member of the old willow court committee?
