    Hi Ian – today you told councillors two things –
    First, you said that we had been through a long due process on Shelly Bay. I know you want your development to happen, but surely you must realise how wrong the HASHA legislation was to just cut the wider community out of any chance of having a say?
    Second, you said your Shelly Bay proposed development would save the community $100 million. It would be really good if you detailed how you came up with that number. It sounds from the way you put it as if you are just adding up many many years of rates bills. That completely ignores that the Council has to provide a lot of services to these new residents, which would swallow up all or most of any financial benefit to the Council. I’ll email this to you too – and look forward to some answers.
    Kind regards, Andy

    Has this guy really got Wellington at heart? This seems like smoke and mirrors…you “give” me valuable land and I will ( actually not me – the people who buy my houses) will give you lots (some) of money back in rates! He could give all the profit that he will make or even the majority of it back to the city…then he would become more plausible methinks.
    Meantime while Peter Jackson sorts out Shelley Bay, it seems from the information he provided that the taxpayer is funding this guy nicely,

    That’s not true as $3 million is additional rates, not lost rates. As we all see, the Council have wastefully hemorrhaged away money it borrows in our names. The $30 million to close the undamaged library is far more concerning than this developer’s self serving spin. How much more than that has the Council wasted on legal costs when they fight the communities that oppose them? Democracy is at the bottom of the cliff (still awaiting the ambulance).

    Ian, how much will it cost to upgrade the road? How much of this are you paying?

    Can Mr Cassels reply to Cr Foster and to me please?
