Council drags chain while horse bolts

 

The horse had bolted: while the Town Council was mulling over the issues and deciding to send a letter to the Minister, the Development Consent Authority approved, with conditions, two proposed telecommunications towers in Araluen. Councillor Jade Kudrenko, who has been trying to represent constituents’ views opposing the siting of the towers, last night expressed her frustration with council’s slowness while the DCA’s process had rolled on. KIERAN FINNANE reports from council’s committee meetings. Other issues: buskers in the mall • water waste and savings • asbestos in confidential • McDouall Stuart statue in no-man’s land.
