Property Council suffers under Steve Greenwood's delusional claims

Steve Greenwood -
Queensland's new
unofficial State
Opposition Leader


Media Release from Ipswich City Councillor Paul Tully

The Property Council of Australia has been slammed for its "war of attrition" against the state government and councils over new valuation laws in Queensland.

The Property Council has been running full page newspaper advertisements condemning new laws which reinstated decades of land valuation methodology in Queensland.

The Land Appeal Court upheld an appeal by Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on the Gold Coast reducing the centre's land valuation from $255 million to $47.5 million.

Long-serving Ipswich Councillor Paul Tully has singled out the Property Council Executive Director Steve Greenwood for his "malicious and unfounded claims" over the issue.

"He is falsely claiming rates for business properties across Queensland will skyrocket as a result of the new legislation.

"The new law simply restores the valuation methodology which has been in place for over 60 years.

"It's business as usual for property valuations across the state.

"This new law will protect ordinary property owners and councils.

"Mr Greenwood has set himself up as the unofficial opposition leader in Queensland wasting the Property Council funds by spuriously attacking the state government.

"The Property Council is frittering away its members funds with outrageous claims which have no legal or factual basis.

"Steve Greenwood owes the people of Queensland a massive apology for his unacceptable scare tactics," Cr Tully said.

New bogus Tax Office scam hits Australia

A new email scam has hit Australia today with scammers asking for personal information aimed at stripping funds out of the accounts of unsuspecting email recipients.
