Alistair Broad – is he having a meltdown, or what?
Why is freehold baron Earl Hagaman not mentioned in this story?
[why is DCC’s treatment of the Caledonian leaseholders vaguely referenced, not by name… ugliness alert]
Oh dear, moths flying around the noble art of leaseholding as it may hold back development – what do they want? For Port Otago Ltd and Otago Regional Council to relinquish their power and wealth? Why should they?
What have Hilary Calvert and investor friends got to do with all this? The plot thickens.
Has this really anything to do with city councillors, EMT and the City Development Team (including the shattered urban design team) using “friends” to arbitrate change in the property sector. District plan and spatial plan objectives to be met for (cough) economic development?
