CCC to investigate allegations of corruption relating to Gold Coast City Council decision-making - 2 March 2018

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has determined it is in the public interest to advise it has commenced an investigation into allegations of corrupt conduct relating to decision-making by some Gold Coast City Council councillors.

The allegations broadly involve possible conflicts of interests relating to decisions on a range of development matters on the Gold Coast.

The CCC referred some matters in September 2017 to the then Department of Local Government, Infrastructure and Planning to investigate subject to the CCC’s monitoring role.

The CCC has since considered an interim report from the Department.

The allegations, which raise a reasonable suspicion of corrupt conduct, will now be investigated by the CCC.

It is important to note that all allegations should be treated as unsubstantiated until the investigation is finalised.

Whilst the investigation is progressing, the CCC is unable to comment further. This includes not commenting on specific developments or decisions of the Council that are the subject of the investigation.
