WPG chair­man pleased with de­ci­sion

Melville Times - - News -

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.
