Fence access 'never blocked'

AN ongoing dispute over a boundary fence at Inner Pocket will be heard by the Lands Board tomorrow.

The two-and-a-half year debate over access to three properties boiled over with the erection of an electric fence last week. One neighbour, Kath Vail, stated in The Northern Star on Saturday that access to her property was cut off as a result of the fence.

However, neighbour Kelvin Daley said yesterday the fence was designed to be opened by Mrs Vail using an isolator handle which breaks electricity supply to the fence.

“Access has never been blocked,” Mr Daley said. “We have been portrayed as the big bad wolf.”

Mr Daley said the property boundary had been surveyed at his own expense.
