Council and MP to discuss kennel

RESIDENTS opposed to the development of a guard dog training kennel at Halfway Creek have taken heart from a meeting with the Member for Clarence, Steve Cansdell.

The residents met with Mr Cansdell on Thursday night in the Kungala Hall to discuss ways they can overturn the Clarence Valley Council’s decision to approve the development for a guard dog training facility and boarding kennel.

Residents’ spokesperson Bob McGowan said Mr Cansdell will meet with Mayor Richie Williamson and the council general manager to discuss the issue.

In the meantime the owner of the development, Andrew Richardson, has told The Daily Examiner he believes the objectors do not understand the legislation governing guard dog training.

“I don’t need a licence to train guard dogs, only to use them,” he said.
