Council chief responds to MVM correspondence
The Gore District Council’s chief officer Mr Parry`s reply to Ian Robertson is just not good enough. Mr Robertson deserves a full and correct reply and should not be fobbed off with the oft quoted saying of Mae West ‘‘Come in and see me some time’’.
E MacManus, Gore Mr Robertson’s letters raised three issues; the rationale for offering a 25 per cent discount in building consent fees to MVM, challenging the veracity of my contention that the MVM development is the biggest in the history of the Gore District Council and wanting to know the level of financial contribution that will be imposed on the new development. The first issue was clearly explained in an article that appeared in the Newslink on 18 October. The second was comprehensively answered and rebutted in my response to Mr Robertson’s letter which was published on 2 November. The third issue covering financial contributions, which has yet to be determined by Councillors, was covered off in my response to Mr Robertson’s second letter one week later. So, I am perplexed as to what your correspondent believes has been missed? Steven Parry Gore District Council CEO
