Residents angry and frustrated

Hills residents are outraged after a metropolitan council pushed ahead with a controversial and “predatory” plan to annex their homes.
Last week the Campbelltown Council agreed to lodge the second stage of a boundary realignment proposal that would see it absorb about 600 Rostrevor and Woodforde properties from the neighboring Adelaide Hills Council.
The stage two proposal will be submitted to the Boundaries Commission which will decide whether it merits further investigation.
If the boundary realignment goes ahead it will cost the Adelaide Hills Council more than $1m in annual rates.
