Good news. The Council’s lawyer contacted me this morning to tell me that the Council will be surrendering its resource consents. The reasons given are:

(1) The work to be done on the trees was going to be different to what the consents allowed so would have required a variation to the consents, which must in any event be processed in the same way as a new consent application;

(2) The Council accepts that the consents were not validly granted because of the delegation issue.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
