The Shout published an article which detailed Woolshed’s announcement that it will no longer operate, as the business is no longer viable.
The article includes quotes from Duncan Laidlaw, general manager of Woolshed, stating that the loss would be in the millions for the business:
- “It’s obviously going to be devastating for us in the long term.”
The article also includes quotes from a spokesperson from Development Victoria, who stated that safety is its priority, but also that the organisation had acted in “good faith”.
- “We know how much this affects people’s businesses, jobs and events but the safety of people working on and using the pier has to be our number one priority…A detailed assessment of Central Pier by our engineering consultants is underway on a priority basis.”
- “Any legal action will be defended.”
