Breaking News!! Dungog Council Meltdown

Posted 25 May 2017
Journalist Joanne McCarthy has finally made public in today’s Newcastle Herald, 24 May 2017, some of what we were aware has been going on behind the scenes at Port Stephens Council for some time.
“Port Stephens Council decided last night to approve a 32 metre apartment tower at 11-13 Church St, Nelson Bay – twice the current height limit.”
‘We wouldn’t wish our Council on our worst enemies – let alone our friends here in Dungog.’
Examiner 15 May 2017 Letters to The Editor: Worse Councils to complain about
“TRRA have supported this review, how can Councillors ask for submissions from the community for a review then pre-empt its findings with this approval?”
