I have been informed, by Byron Davies’s office, that a Full Enquiry as now been started; I would like it to be an Independent Enquiry as I believe this incident has far reaching implications. It was started by an application by Rob Dix, of the Regeneration Panel, his boss, Bethan Jones must have okayed the application; it went in front of the Cabinet under the Local Authority Act Schedule 12a, public and press exempt, they must have been informed that there was an offer on the property due to the urgency and the “Tight timetable”, they approved the application. It then befell on Gareth Peters, Principle Property Manager to make the offer and enter in to negotiations. So, as far as I am concerned, this reaches to the very top of the tree.
I believe the Mayor of Colwyn Bay has sent out an email accusing me of “Self promoting”, I, myself have not seen the email yet but I wait in anticipation for its arrival. My answer to the Mayor will be quite simple; “If CCBC kept their house in order and were not so secretive and deceitful then there would be no need for me to go public with such information, if this is just one incident that I have uncovered, Mr Mayor, how many other incidents have gone undisclosed?”.

More power to your elbow, John. These shitehawks need to be shot down.

I spent most of my career associated with the Construction Industry and I could tell a few tales that would make your hair curl!

Bribery and corruption was rife and I have no reason to think it has changed, although I am not suggesting such in this case!

Councillor Blog,
Obviously I am not alleging corruption that would not be my place to do so, although I do understand where you are coming from.
I am sick and tired of the secrecy and deception that as become common trend amongst the Council’s dealings, the Council is in place to benefit the people not the other way around.

Keep it up John. You are doing a valuable service in highlighting these issues.
I'm sure you will be worrying the establishment, and rightly so.
