A temporary stop work order has been placed on a businessman who activated a 35-year old DA on land he bought in Iluka this year.
"It is my legal right to clear all the trees within the approved footprint," Mr William Hu said.
Hu planned to remove every tree on the site to make way for more than 60 new cabins.
A great article to hate read!
"We also see countless birdlife, kookaburras, parrots, black cockatoos, wallabies, bandicoots, possums."
Prime hunting territory.
"I want to build it up to the standard of William Hu" - you gotta respect his use of the third person.
This is a good thing.
There’s only so much liveable space in such a fragile , inhospitable country such as Australia and if a few koalas and other natives facing extinction through habitat loss have to perish so that we can celebrate the vibrancy and diversity of mass immigration driven population expansion then so be it.
Koalas are anything but vibrant, they just sit there. That’s not what good citizens do. Good vibrant citizens show the courage of their dedication to their personal economic growth and refuse to let community expectations get in the way.
Glad to hear that other communities will soon benefit from this diverse and vibrant philosophy and will also see their unproductive natural habitat cleared to make way for more development.
We could well do with another 25 million like Mr Hu !
If he’s got as much sense as he appears he’ll commit to zero dollar tourism as have so many other vibrant and diverse developers.
Who's a fuckwit?
Hu's a fuckwit.
But he likes it’s feng shui
Scary thing is, this fuckwit has a taste for it and wants more ,
Fuck off back to China and shit in your own back yard.
Looks like a Chinse "zero dollar tourism" project, and not dissimilar to the Nav Fox and his mate's Fijian neighbors blatant contempt for the law. These "projects" are like spores from a giant Chinese mushroom, that pop up overnight and then challenge all who dare to object.
For a bloke who is a "business" man and just wants to make money, he seems to be pretty flush with the stuff already. 2.7mill to buy in and he'll need far more than that to clear and prep the site, then the pre construction engineering and the building costs. Seems he's got plenty to spend, my question is where's it coming from, his pocket? or a much larger funding pool? If it's the latter it would explain his arrogant and bullish stance, as he doesn't seem to fussed about tearing down native habitat and possible expensive court costs.
It's fair enough to take it out on Mr Hu, as he's put himself right in the spot light but the other side to the story is will Australian bureaucracy allow him to get away with it.
No one said vibrancy and diversity didn’t come with a price tag.
Though it’s a price we are all eager to pay as diversity is , without question , the highest value a community can aspire to.
Just pipping the economy for first place.
And if every bit of remnant forest on the East coast needs to be razed so that the benefits of vibrancy and diversity roll ever onwards then we shall be happy to say goodbye to the last remaining koala with a broad smile on our faces.
More economy , more vibrancy and less unproductive natural habitat I say !
to be honest I find this stuff much more concerning than global warming.
because there really is fukall I can do about that.
Freeride....this issue and climate change are the same thing.
One third of emissions caused by land clearing. Species loss caused by land clearing. Temperature rises caused by land clearing . Reduced rainfall caused by land clearing.
This POS is doing it wherever he can for more and more money that he obviously does not need.
Just remember that there are plenty "salt of the earth" Aussie farmers doing exactly the same thing but on a much larger scale, and they are doing it with the backing of our elected officials. So it is all well and good to have a go at the Chinese guy and bag his greed, but some of these farmers are just as wealthy and just as greedy. They are just a bit more discreet and out of public view, basically though they just don't give a rat's about the environment
This dickheads not trying to grow anything but his bank balance.
And not just grow it, but grow it up to the standard of William Hu.
I’m just such a fan of William Hu.
Doesn’t the name just ring with vibrancy !
Thank god we’ve seen the end of those dead end , monocultural days when the likes of Bill Heslop or Bob Jelly limited our development potential.
Now we are lucky enough to see such diversity as William Hu clear felling our native habitat on a speculative development. And he’s only just getting started !
Everyday I wake to find evidence of more vibrancy throughout our once sad , monocultural backwater nation. The koalas of Iluka should be proud to give their lives in the promotion of diversity.
I’m sure a plaque commemorating the former existence of natural habitat will promote a pause for reflection amongst the zero dollar, vibrant tourists who will now trammel the dead fall .
What we as Australians will lose in natural habitat and fauna , we will gain ten fold in diversity.
And diversity is strength !
yes Blowin.."And diversity is strength !"
Mr Hu , is following the capitalist system , profit = Western success ,.
Australia is showing great diversity by strengthening his bank account , as us capitalists need China to become like us!
This is why the world is fucked Blowin. Us good people, are also the bad people. I like what your saying, but what about the bits you aren’t talking about. You are also a blowin like him, who dug up the earth to make more than enough money for himself. Blowin, you are William Hu, and there’s more of you than ever on the way uphttps://www.worldometers.info/world-population/
Oh, I’ve probably done worse things to the environment than Mr Hu.
Try trawling the bottom of Exmouth gulf for prawns if you want a proper taste of environmental vandalism.
But that was years ago, before I got a conscience and before the effects of 7billion humans became so critical and apparent. To be acting in such a manner in 2019 is criminal.
Perhaps there will be a deus ex machina and the threat will fall on its own sword just as it seemed invincible:
Yeah nah...most farmers are just trying to survive...as typical broad acre cropping program runs between 1 and 3% net profit on a good year...bad year that goes backwards...most farmesr aren't anti-environment as they understand that its important for their livlehood
Developers have been clearing coastal forest for ever, the Chinese are just late to the party.
Mr Phillip Dong Fang Lee is not wasting time though in trashing Port Stephens.https://www.domain.com.au/news/chinese-developer-phillip-lee-sparks-ire-...
