Dun­rovin Cab­ins

The Packet (Clarenville) - - FRONT PAGE -

Pen­ney says he and wife have gone above and be­yond to make the build­ing wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble, and that many guests with lim­i­ta­tions have ap­plauded the fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided.

Rod noted that each of the cabin doors is 36 inches wide, as op­posed to 32 inches, to help ac­com­mo­date for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

The Pen­neys say they are frus­trated.

“I don’t need this to make a liv­ing. I en­joy do­ing this and I be­lieve in in­vest­ing back to the com­mu­nity and the prov­ince,” said Pen­ney, who noted the fa­cil­ity is an em­ployer of 23 lo­cal res­i­dents, a num­ber that he hopes to in­crease over the years.

“Why is, in this prov­ince, where they ad­ver­tise that gov­ern­ment sup­ports small busi­ness and tourism and all that stuff, and they make every­thing so far out of reach?”

He says that after lawyer’s fees and fines, the whole af­fair could cost up $10,000.

The case will ap­pear in Clarenville pro­vin­cial court Thurs­day, Nov. 23.
