Mayor Hubbard just can't seem to get anything right.

Sally Ridge and Adam Parore can demolish their house Freemans Bay thus delivering another humiliating defeat to Mayor Hubbard.

In a written decision, planning commissioners ruled in the couple's favour. They acknowledged the house had heritage value and were unconvinced it was beyond repair but concluded that demolition would have "only minor effects on the streetscape, visual amenity and heritage character of Arthur St and Wood St".

Bugger eh, stick your new heritage rules right up your arse.

The planning commissioners slapped you with this little comment.

The new heritage rules had still to be formally ratified and had "little legal weight" compared to the operative district plan, which allowed the removal of pre-1940 houses within a residential 1 zone.

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.
