I wasn't going to keep going as I really would be more usefully employed
working on the court case.
You say that BASQ discussed it yesterday. No one talked to me. I am a
party in the court case where you say that was unsuccesful. I wish it were
so. We are fighting the case desperately. The Council has now supported
the developer. For the last two weeks I have been making trips to Brisbane
to fight the preliminary details. For those who wish to check the details
it is in the Planning and Environment Court at Brisbane and it is Rainbow
Shores v Gympie Regional Council and Others (No 2768 of 2009.) We are the
Others. I have to prepare to go down on Wednesday for a hearing in
preparation for a trial in June. There is a mountain of stuff to do.
Cheryl Cole provided Greg Wood with a statement. He is a separate party to
the appeal and is not a member of BA. I can access the material but BA gave
If anyone wants to have a look at the report of Dr Justin Watson I'll post
you a copy on a CD. Read it yourself before you tell me what is in it.
I've read it.
Dez Wells, convenor of BASQ, did not offer to co- sign a letter to the
court. Such a letter would be of no value anyway. They want scientific
evidence, not letters of support. I think perhaps Dez may be confusing a
contact I made with him over a year earlier. The only contact that I had
with Dez about this matter was before the development was rejected, before
the court case and before I contacted Dr Hamilton. I asked for a
responsible authority to verify the evidence of BBBQ in a different area
that was under threat. I asked Dez for this. The best that he could offer
was a joint letter to politicians This was letter to politicians was
confirmed in a previous response from Dr Hamilton. So your story is
starting to wander.
Your letter demonstrates the incompetence of BA, their failure to deal
honestly with members, their failure to protect birds and why we need BOCA
to continue independently.
If you want to help contact me and offer help. I really have to get back to
doing the court work to protect the BBBQ. The case definitely has not been
won as you say.
