Critical of Carbonear’s treatment of landowners
As a concerned taxpayer, I am appalled at the treatment that Debra and Walter Bradbury are receiving from the Town of Carbonear.
This is nothing short of harassment and discrimination to prevent Mr. and Mrs. Bradbury from getting a building permit (“Carbonear resident not happy with town,” Dec. 23, 2014). It would appear that the Carbonear council uses the by-laws and rules to please themselves.
The council issued two building permits for people to build about 400 feet from the Bradbury’s lot on a small lane. You really can’t call it a street — it’s too small. It comes to a dead end just past the second house and then there is a major drop at the end. The council said it was not a dead end, it was a cul-de-sac. Hello, check the dictionary. Cul-de-sac means dead end.
I drove up on Bunker Hill and it is a thoroughfare. The council may have removed the name from the new maps, but they did not erase the road. It’s still there. Check the computer. You can clearly see the thoroughfare. So what is council’s problem?
