After last week’s top story about council’s possible forced designation of three properties on Prideaux Street, there was some confusion about whether local resident and Prideaux Street homeowner Tom Elltoft is in favour of the heritage decision or opposing it.

Elltoft, well-known in the community for supporting preservation of heritage, was in favour of the designation. We acknowledge that without reading the story, it could have been perceived that he was opposing the decision, based on the headline which accompanied a photo of Elltoft. We encourage all readers to read stories before making comments on social media.

With the Black family unavailable for a photo, and Elltoft being a widely-known community figure who holds powerful views about heritage presentation, the photo was a natural second choice for the story.
