MAYOR VAL AND COUNCIL GET BIG COURT WIN OVER DEVELOPER DESTRUCTION OF CAIRNS ENVIRONMENT - MARGE COCHRANE AND BOB MANNING WOULD SCREW THE PUBLIC FOR THEIR DEVELOPER MATES

In a big win for Mayor Val Schier, developer Robert Prettejohn has been blocked by the courts from development of the pristine Trinity Beach headland, Taylor Point.


This comes just as the issues are being drawn in the Cairns Regional Council battle for Mayor and councillors, and serves to remind the residents of Cairns the balance between developer and resident that Mayor Val Schier's council has represented.  


"The reality is that the people have said they wanted this hillslope back for the people of Cairns", said Mayor Schier after the court ruling today.


Judge Everson said simply that the development was against the planning rules, and would not be allowed.  The case for the Trinity Beach residents was overwhelmingly in their favour, but it required Council and their lawyers to defend this area from being raped with ugly and overbuilt developments like Buchans Point and the Cairns waterfront.  And it's these same developers bankrolling the anti-Cairns Entertainment Precinct candidates, hoping to get the EP land back not for "port expansion", a furphy, but another giant ugly apartment block just like the last Unity Team council slammed up next to the Hilton.  Fair dinkum.


While rejected by a majority of the council when it came up for approval, voters should take notice of the councillors who've continued to vote for these land-rapes by greedy developers - among them candidates Marge Cochrane, Alan Blake, and disgraced former councillor Sno "Max T Brown" Bonneau.  Yes, we actually read the report about his "campaign contributions".  Exonerated my arse.  More soon.


This is the kind of project that the Unity Team, led by Bob Manning, and the Community Alliance, led by Marge Cochrane will again jam down the people's throats if elected.  This decision today is a great reminder of how effective the protection of Cairns and its environs have been under Mayor Val Schier.

Get this news out there to remind Cairns residents the type of "anything goes" developments we can expect under a Mayor such as Cochrane and/or Manning. Once again Mayor Val has shown how she really does care for this city, by fighting to keep its natural beauty and supports growth with infrastructure which will benefit ALL the community, not just the developers, such as the Entertainment Precinct.

"VOTE 4 VAL"

Greed is a difficult monster to fight. Well done Val and people of Cairns.

Dina said...

Great work by Val. She also has succeeded in getting us an earlier rollout of the NBN, not of course that The Cairns Post acknowledged her efforts on our behalf.

Smithfield Sam said...

Prettejohns own other sensitive land, including a huge chunk at the sound end of Palm Cove. They have not been good friends to the environment in Cairns, and let's hope this teaches them a lesson.

Anonymous said...

With Newman promising to overhaul the Local Government Act, you can bet the Prettejohns will try again later.

Aunty Val is just a old labor mole that was taught at the same school as big arse Julia, both fucken liars and fake there way thru there jobs. And you Hilbilly went to the same school.

Bob R. said...

Anonymous above, haven't you taken our advice and gone back to school to learn the Queen's English and grammar? Just curious, do you know the difference between "mole" and "moll"?

Anonymous said...

Tut tut above! Obviously failed grade 9 and dropped out of school to become a totally useless illiterate cretin.

Dr Dougie said...

What a sad, unintelligent and illiterate person that troll anonymous must be. So full of vile anger and nastiness. But then again, maybe it's a tumour or something.

Anonymous said...

At least i don't bullshit my way thru life like you Bob R, so the best you can do is pick on me for my spelling. If you fucken wankers had your way, this country would be communist you mob of Labor thugs.

Bob R. said...

Here we go, the old "reds under the bed" hysteria from Anonymous above. Joh's campaigning still reverberates through the decades, "the reds are coming to get you, they're coming to get you." It must be etched on Anonymous' brain for life, like a giant brain tumour as Dr Dougie said. I'm still wondering what a "old labor mole" is? The mind boggles -

Kay said...

Cairns does need Val. Cochrane and Manning would not have had any scruples whatsoever in approving this development at Trinity Beach. Manning has his eye on Munro Martin Park as a place for the performing arts theate for Chrissakes. It is the last green open space in the city and all he can think of is "fill it up with concrete." VOTE 4 VAL

Campbell, Clive's Talking Tool said...

Oh no we've been caught out comrades by super sleuth anonymous. Quick, away to the airport with the rest of the communist labor thugs and back to Moscow. Really, what century does this goose live in! The Liberal party is more left wing than Labor is these days. That's half their problem.

Destiny Prophet said...

If Anonymous sees a big arse as an impediment to election, we have a very good idea who he won't be voting for.

bogan said...

A "old labor mole" is a black and grey hairy critter which lives underground working most of its life digging with a little shovel.
Fancy youse people not knowing that?? Sheeeesh, what is the world coming to?

Bus. Op. said...

Yeah Newman has said he will overhaul the Local Government Act, and with no opposition, I reckon it is going to be open slather for all sorts of dodgy developments in Queensland. The Prettejohns will be back.

Anonymous said...

How can anyone in there right mind believe a word what the Labor Party say, after all the lies big arse has told the Australian public, but i suppose theres allways you mob of Labor die hards that still believe in the tooth fairy and santa. This country is broke due to Labor mismanagement. Thank fuck Labor are gone and we now have to try and get this country back on track, and no more wasteing tax payers money.And you thugs can have a go at my grammar but at least im not a looser like you thugs.

Anonymous said...

You;'re right Bus.Op. From what I have read about Newman's proposed changes he wants to "empower Councils to assist development" - which basically means he will be dismantling a lot of the appeals processes I dare say.

Th biggest lie in the last Federal election was Tony Abbott's costing with a $70 BILLION black hole! Just imagine what position the country would be in if they had won govt. Julia's so called lie is nothing compared to that and in actual fact to "change your mind on something" is not a lie. The Joh bad days are back. There may be no opposition in parliament, but there WILL be opposition in the streets.

craig said...

bogan old bean, there is such ignorance in the world today mate.
Anonymous has probably had sex with moles and molls and didn't notice any differences.

Anonymous said...

Sorry anonymous, but your lack of literacy skills do make you a 'looser'. It makes about as much sense as your total lack of substantive evidence to support your rants. Australia is broke? That's news to me. As one of the few nations to escape the GFC relatively unscathed I thought we were doing pretty damn well compared to other Western nations including the US.
Maybe you should get your information from something more intelligent than Andrew Bolt columns and Mackenzie talkback shows.

Awful grammar, spelling, punctuation and syntax would suggest someone under 30 who dropped out of school and now thinks the world owes them a favour.

Your all a bunch of loosers, and yes you mob of snotty nose pricks will feel the full strenth of the LNP and you will all crawl back under your rocks. Your over paid Government jobs that you have will no longer be, and we will see all the boats and over priced 4x4 Toyotas parked on the side road for sale. Yep day of reconing is here and thats why you are all so pissed off. HaaaaaaHa

Michael Weitzmann said...

Dear Destiny Prophet,
I think the aformentioned anonymous has made it clear for whom he will not be voting. Did you have someone else in mind? As the people have indicated in the late Qld state election, Labor has nor listened to them and unless they do, there will be consequences at the federal level.

Bus. Op. said...

I seem to recognise that "HaaaaaaHa"!!! Anyone else?
From memory it is the same dyslexia as well. ROFL ROFL

Tegan said...

Mayor Val was just awesome today at the community forum in City Place. None of the others could compare with her.

athena said...

Michael Weitzmann, obviously you don't understand that this thread is discussing the forthcoming Council, not the Federal Elections.

CC from Kewarra Beach said...

It never ceases to amaze me. We actually have ignorant wankers like anonymous 30/03/12 17:11.

Who do you think is responsible for the unemployment pension you probably get paid, the old age pension you will get paid, the workers’ compensation you get paid when you get hurt should you ever go to work and get injured, the free health care you can receive, the public housing you probably live in? Forgive me for thinking these are all SOCIALIST policies.

Well let me remind you.
Labor Governments. Watson and Fisher established old-age and disability pensions, improved working conditions including a maternity allowance and workers’ compensation, the commonwealth Bank and the age at which women became entitled to the old-age pension was lowered from 65 to 60.

Chifley introduced the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and free hospital ward treatment; improvements in social services; created the Commonwealth Employment Service; introduced federal funds to the States for public housing construction; created civilian rehabilitation service; and established the Australian National University.

And not to forget Whitlam who introduced fee-free tertiary education, legal aid programs, the elimination of military conscription and criminal execution, and of course health care in Australia became universal with the creation of Medibank
I say it again IGNORANT WANKER!

If you are so unhappy with Socialist policies upon which our society is so well grounded why don't you piss off to the USA that shining example of capitalism, where only the wealthy can afford health care and billions of dollars wasted on electioneering?

Tony Hillier said...

Val Schier was cogent, confident and compelling at the City Place forum on Sunday, addressing all the issues articulately. By comparison, the other mayoral candidates were monosyllabic and nebulous. In response to a question from the audience, Ian Thomas admitted that he had spent the past decade living on the Gold Coast. That alone should eliminate his claims as a legitimate candidate.

Michael Weitzmann said...

Athena, I was refering to a previous post by "anonymous" who refered to "big arse Julia" in his post. Destiny seemed to think that this meant the poster should not vote for other "big arsed" persons (maybe in the council election...?). I was pointing out that the remark was specific to Julia. I would suggest that, whilst the poster has coined a handy description of Julia, the posters anipathy to Julia does not derive from her big arsedness. Further, I feel the poster does not imply antipathy for other big arsed persons. Other posters on here don't seem to get the gist of this posters direction as they seem unable to move past his perceived lack of grammatical skills. This is typical of Labor, which is all style and no substance.

Tegan said...

Tony Hillier, I agree Val was the best speaker and I would be proud to have her as Mayor because she has made a lot of difference here in CaIrns but after people voted for Gavin King who is an asshole last Saturday I'm not sure of anything any more.

CC from kewarra, you and all your labor bludgers that expect everything and don't give nothing back, just take and take and take and thats why this country is in the mess its in today, because of labor WANKERS like you. HaaaaHa

Interesting to note that Ritchie Bates has easily caspitulated and gone over to the dark side. Yeah winners are grinners, and when the wind blows, the hollow men bend.
Nuff said. I'm in Division 5 and I'm now voting for Locco.

athena said...

Anonymous aka Colin the dyslexic dugong, I know CC of Kewarra Beach, who is a professional person, who has given a hell of a lot back to the community.

Kay said...

Tegan, 60% of people in the Cairns Electorate DID NOT VOTE for Gavin King. He actually has received the lowest vote of any elected Member of Cairns as far back as I can find out. Console yourself that the majority of people did not want him as a Member of Parliament!

Mick said...

Please everyone, just ignore the troll. Replying to it only feeds its sad little ego and makes it think it has some relevance.

Anonymous said...

Oh dear, the grammar just gets worse. How embarrassing that people like anonymous do not know or even care about how stupid they are. What a loser! Note correct spelling cretin.

Destiny Prophet said...

I'm surprised to hear that Australia's in a mess.

Anonymous must never get out of Cairns which of course is suffering from it's previous reliance on Japanese and US tourists - most of Australia is booming. The citizens of the lucky country have never been so lucky.
We are one of the richest countries in the world, with a phenomenal standard of living, about the best subsidised health system outside of Cuba, affordable education, massive national savings through superannuation, enviable infrastructure considering the massive, sparsely populated land mass, one of the world's most comprehensive social welfare safety nets etc and we keep getting richer - certainly Gina Reinhart and Clive Palmer's wallets get fatter and fatter.

@ MW - Athena is correct as usual.
Sorry not to pay much attention Michael but when people just parrot the same old party lines without original thought or consideration I tune out. Life's too short. Don't be offended. It was the same when I attempted to listen to the recorded broadcasts of Lord Haw Haw.

VOTE 1 JOE BLAKE said...

I just had a read of this thread and Im voting for Locco too. Val has been shitcarted by cueball and King the pair of bullyboy thugs for years and I cant understand Ritchie Bates not standing up to their type of fascist tactics. I reckon hes showing his colours. Locco will get my vote anyday.

athena said...

Well said Desiny Prophet. Just drive around and have a look at peoples lifestyles here in Australia. Two cars, big homes, well kept yards mostly, pools in backyards, kids with bicycles, people well fed, dressed in latest clothing. People at restaurants, lots of domestic travellers at airports. Most Aussies have now gone on overseas trips. Then go to the USA and see how the "ordinary" people there are faring.

Athena and you have it all on CREDIT you dickhead, and you have this mentality that im doing allright, stuff anyone else attitude, well take alook outside your well to do RIPPING other people off life style its not all rosey, next time while you are snorting, have a think about everyone else.
