Councillor Wyn, immigrant or incomer the meaning is the same and your e-mail is still offensive. Immigrant is a synonym of incomer, they have the same meaning and are interchangeable. The insult still remains however you try to hide it!
When compared to the damage to OUR community there is no economic benefit that can justify this development – the planning officers recognised this, 10 of your fellow councillors recognised this, public protection recognised this, community council recognised this and the list goes on.
You claim to be basing your decision on helping the local community – the local community including all the “incomers/immigrants” as well as the indigenous locals have already shared their voice – WHY ARE YOU INCAPABLE OF LISTENING?
Why are you still defending your misguided comments and why are we still waiting for an apology?
