|The Willow Court Oval change-rooms site this evening|
Contractors moved in early this morning to remove the roof and other remains of the weatherboard change rooms, which were razed in a deliberately-lit fire on Saturday afternoon.
Despite the intervention of passers-by who were concerned about the apparently unnecessary demolition of the basement level, the structure was levelled after a temporary halt, and most of the brick and sandstone was removed. Only a few pieces of hand-hewn stone remained this evening.
The Willow Court Conservation and Management Plan said the change-rooms building must be preserved but could be relocated. It is believed that the change-rooms were cut off from the part of the property sold by the Derwent Valley Council to a supermarket developer.
