You wouldnt read about it

Secret dossiers from major developers on public officials! It sounds like something from from a b-grade Mafia movie. Yet it’s happening right here in the Tweed.

In an attempt to coerce councillors into seeing things their way and to speed up the DA process, a major developer has accused them of being ’green’, a charge never before made against our ‘award-winning’ council.

This report was never meant to be for public consumption but some brave, enterprising person had it leaked to the press.

That a developer should use such underhand tactics to get their own way is totally unethical and the parties concerned need to be taken to task for their wrongful behaviour.
