I am sure most of you would have heard news that a $40 million development application has been lodged for the development of a shopping centre in Dubbo’s CBD. The DA includes commercial premises (offices and retail), shop-top housing, serviced apartments, motel accommodation and car parking.

The business owners that I have spoken with are much keener to see the police take action against people who are not following the laws of our land. Read More...
