Opposed to Council no matter what they do

Letters to the editor

[Forum] Adam Crouch manages to criticise Central Coast Council (CCN edition 243) both for opposing the government’s decision to have any contentious development application determined by an independent expert-dominated panel, and for resolving that all DAs in the city centre should be determined by an independent expert panel.

I suppose he is being consistent – he is opposed to the council no matter what they do – and it does get him more mentions in the paper, which is the object of the exercise.

But it is interesting that someone who [had] more people vote for him than his opponent should be so obsessed with excluding elected councillors from any say in what people do to our built environment.
