5.Have footpaths established along the full extent of Auricht Road, Church Street and Balhannah Road – Main Street to Molens Road;

2012-01-16 22:05:13   In 1973 we left our home in Ferntree Gully near Melbourne and moved to Hahndorf. We had visited SA and my parents fell in love with SA. Hahndorf was greatest in our memories and Mum and Dad bought a home there . It was a large looking home in the Main Street, but I think on the way to Sterling. The house Number was 157 Main Street. I was only 13 at the time, I think our neighbours were an older couple with grown children. I think their names were Staryck , or something simular. I remember the lady telling me that the house had been a hospital at one time. I do know tyhat the home was called Willowmoor. I returned to Hahndorf in my early 20s. The house had been renovated and had become an Art Gallery and the present owners had made a home in the hay loft style building out the back. The property was about 2 acres and it backed onto the then newly proposed Captain Hahns Caravan Park . Does any one Know the place ? Does it still stand, and what was the history? I live in NSW now and would love to take my kids back to see this . —124.184.104.32

2012-02-04 08:52:12   The big house was built as a private residence for the tanner and farmer Albert Storch (late 19th century) and the present caravan park used to be the farm attached to the house. The stone remains of the tannery still stand beside the Onkaparinga River further along the road by the bridge. It was never a hospital. —TonyFinnis

Dear Sir/Madam,

My wife and I recently spent10 days in and around the delightful village of Hahndorf.
We thoroughly enjoyed browsing the gift and craft shops and of course the coffee shops and pubs. The number of ancient buildings and their history were a real treat.

However (and it’s a big However) the experience was marred by the constant stream of really heavy trucks thundering through the main street. We are talking log trucks, sheep trucks, cattle trucks, and car transporters to name but a few.

Surely, given the very close proximity of the freeway it would be a simple matter to construct some kind of by-pass spur to take these heavy vehicles off the main street and redirect them around the town.
We found good car parks behind the chop too, why aren’t they used??

The vibration damage being caused to the historical building must be significant. Please do not wait until they start to fall down.

We haven’t even mentioned the danger to pedestrians. We also found good car parks behind the shops too, why aren’t they used?? It would be so much safer.

We would be very please to hear your views.

Yours faithfully
