Iron Gates developer launches appeal against DA refusal at Evans Head

It is a saga that has been going on for over 30 years and that some hoped might finally have come to an end. But that is not to be the case with an appeal against the refusal of the Iron Gates development application (DA) at Evans Head now having been submitted.

A man has been charged and investigations continue following an alleged home invasion at Doonside yesterday.

About 4pm (Tuesday 9 August 2016), police will allege two men broke into a house on Oldaker Street.

A firearm and a knife were allegedly produced by the men who demanded property from a 44-year-old female resident, who was inside the home at the time.

Officers from Blacktown Local Area Command were alerted to the incident and following a short foot pursuit, arrested one of the men and secured the firearm for forensic analysis.

Patrols were made for the second man who was not located.

A 19-year-old man was taken to Blacktown Police Station where he was charged with several offences including:

– Special aggravated break and enter;

– Possess shortened firearm;

– Possess ammunition without permit;

– Possess loaded firearm in public place; and

– Possess unregistered firearm.

He was refused bail to appear before Blacktown Local Court today (Wednesday August 10).
