Why put a courthouse in a residential area!!! There is a resource consent lodged with the Masterton District Council to have the District Court operating from the old Totara Drive School! Many people in this area and beyond are not happy about this! We want our children to be able to play safely in our yards and to feel safe in our homes! Not only have these issues been highlighted but also things like: increased vehicle and foot traffic, increased noise, parking congestion, reduced security and decreased real estate values...to name a few! A courthouse should be located in a commercial area, not in our backyards!
