WPG chairman pleased with decision
From Page 1 WPG chairman Andrew Ross was pleased with the decision after what he said were months of “malicious, false and gratuitous statements from individuals and groups who oppose the surf park”.
“Our main focus is completing our development application for the project for submission to State regulatory authorities and for review by the community,” he said.
The Alfred Cove Action Group remained unconvinced by the statement.
Spokesmen Clive Ross and David Maynier argued it found Mr Cahoon had declared an investment in the WPG but did little to clear him of a conflict of interest or show he did not benefit.
“Even if Mr Cahoon has not, because of a technicality, breached the legislation, he has knowingly prepared a report despite having a conflict of interest and has obtained a benefit,” they said.
A CCC spokeswoman said its statement related to all allegations against Mr Cahoon.
