DCC Draft 2GP hearings panel lacks FULL INDEPENDENCE

This is a legal matter.
Not merely an RMA matter, this is about Ratepayers’ equity.

█ The membership of the Draft 2GP hearings panel should not include ANY Councillors. NONE.

All on the Draft 2GP hearings panel should be sage experienced Independent Commissioners – this is possible to achieve !!

█ All Councillors have direct (real and perceived) conflicts of interest where the Draft 2GP is concerned.

In the public interest, Dunedin City Council should be legally challenged on the selection process for, and the membership of the Draft 2GP hearings panel.

The Council has an exceptionally glowing reputation for fraud and corruption. It is very far from being squeaky clean – and now, an inappropriate relationship at Council is distorting democracy.

You were warned.

Green perceptions spark row
By Chris Morris
Claims a panel that will shape the future of Dunedin has been stacked with a “green tinge” have sparked a political row within the Dunedin City Council. The criticism came from Crs Andrew Whiley, Hilary Calvert and Lee Vandervis yesterday, as they attacked the makeup of the panel selected to hear public submissions on the second generation district plan (2GP). Their views have been blasted by other councillors, who accused them of failing to raise any objections during a council debate on the panel’s membership.

    There must be independent commissioners to sit on the 2GP. There is one idiot that has been appointed who regularly sits on consents hearings. Ignores planners advice, and rides roughshod over
    The People’s document, the district plan. Gives decisions that suit cronies.

  2. Simon

    Two of the appointed members to the 2GP hearings committee were on the Mosgiel Countdown hearing, and ruled that if you work for Countdown you will be treated like shit and not allowed to park on the public roads around Countdown like other normal people, and now they will have the responsibility to decide on the new district plan. God defend Dunedin.

    That old reprobate Cr Benson-Pope is right to the forefront in the 2GP deliberations. He will be on the ‘hind teat’ for as long as it takes. It’s the money stupid he would admit if he were honest. But no-one ever suggested he was that, least of all Helen Clark.

    Sustainability, the plan and consequences-allergies, infertility and disease.
    Sustainability in Dunedin, lead by Dave Cull and Jinty McTavish and Dunedin planners.

    If you want these effects on your children and grandchildren- support Sustainabilty.

  6. Gurglars

    Dunedin is one of ten New Zealand council members of ICLEI, an organisation determined to erode your rights and privileges.

    To find out to stop Jinty, Dave and the mad scientist revolution they propose read this and act.

    All of the stupid actions taken by the DCC over the past few years (since Harland and Chin) are explained by “Sustainable”, Agenda 21, and the DCC’s stupid adherence to the principles of Agenda 21.

    If you want a world proposed by Lenin and Stalin run by the “New World Order” well because of Agenda 21 you’re nearly there.

  7. Gurglars

    Stop the 2GP plan now, or we’re stuffed (including you and yours)

    Gurglars; I’m afraid the horse has bolted on this 2GP thing as it is ‘Agenda21’ writ large. This is due to the persistent ‘weasling’ of the ‘Greater Dunedin’ faction led by Dave Cull and Jinty MacTavish quietly but insidiously pushing the green anti fossil fuel pro sustainability agenda as espoused by the Rio statement of the ‘Agenda 21’ . We see it also in the University faction pushing the ‘Climate Change’ issue despite not putting forward a shred of empirical evidence in support of their claims. Worse, we have seen demonstrated just within the last week the bitter condemnation of any contra opinions being expressed. The ivory tower hypocrisy of these people remind one of the ‘Medieval Inquisition’ persecution of non believers. They sit there in their ‘tenured’ positions pontificating while all the time enjoying the benefits of ‘fossil fuels’. They overlook the benefits of the campus heating/air conditioning being energised by steam produced by burning oil and or coal in prodigious amounts. They arrive at their pre-approved parking spaces for their cars. They sit at their computers conveniently ignoring the fossil fuel content of those machines plus the plastic covering of the cables and fibre optics and the conduits enclosing them. They ignore, or fail to understand that the world’s food supplies are totally dependent on fossil fuels for fertilizers and pest control, not to mention the tilling of the soil, the planting and harvesting, the transport from farm to table. That’s just some of the aspects these ‘wannabes’, ‘do-gooders’ and ‘improvers’ want to shove down the population at large’s necks. There is no doubt in my mind that if this trend continues then by ‘default’ the citizens will wake up one day and find themselves back in the nineteenth century and freezing to boot. There is no will in that Civic Centre building to call a halt and rethink of where we are heading.

    The dumbing down of the population is certainly working at DCC central.
