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
