Further to last week’s story regarding a large DA submitted for south Ocean Shores for eight dwellings over three large lots and the removal of over 800m2 of vegetation, developer Callum Sked has responded to The Echo.
He said, ‘After spending significant time and expense on behalf of the owners’ co-operative to amend the DA, at the request of the immediate neighbours, led by the editor of The Echo, it is disappointing that both the neighbours and The Echo have collaborated to produce an article full of inaccuracies and misrepresentations about the project application, the owners’ group, and my motivations in relation to the project personally.’
The Echo has asked for further clarification as to what was inaccurate in the story but there has been no reply.
All surrounding residents maintain the proposal is totally inappropriate for the area. They say the DA provides no assurance that the high density proposed would not exacerbate an already boggy catchment or will be geographically stable.
The Echo’s editor has previously disclosed his pecuniary interest in this matter.
