Deal hammered out

A blacksmith threatened with eviction from the Australian Technology Park at Eveleigh will be allowed to stay. Guido Gouverneur has used a workshop rent-free for 18 years, but the Redfern-Waterloo Authority told him last month that he must start paying rent. Heritage campaigners said he should be able to stay rent-free because he trains apprentices and maintains rare and old machinery. Mr Gouverneur will now rent a workshop for half the commercial rate for four years.
