What's happening with resort Clive? 'Get some real news'
CLIVE Palmer is refusing to make clear his intentions for the redevelopment of Palmer Coolum Resort.
Repeated attempts by the Daily in the past weeks to gain updates on the billionaire's objectives for the prime piece of land have been declined.
Mr Palmer's most recent advice was to "find some real news".
It was the Member for Fairfax's response to questions on whether or not plans at Coolum would mirror an application before Gold Coast City Council to put buildings on half of Palmer Colonial golf course at Robina.
Do you believe residents have the right to know the future of the Palmer resort?
This poll ended on 19 August 2015.
No, it's Clive Palmer's business, not ours
Yes, It's important to the Coast economy, the resort is the hub of Coolum
Who cares, I wish he'd sell the resort and move on
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
The Gold Coast application reportedly sought approval to develop up to 5000 residential dwellings, high-rises and new infrastructure on the former Avica resort on Gooding Dr.
It sought the removal of nine of the 18 holes at Palmer Colonial to make way for a range of buildings including towers ranging between eight and 30 storeys.
Palmer Coolum Resort's accommodation and conference facilities were closed in March.
The resort's website said a major refurbishment and redevelopment program was due to start by as early as April.
When asked a fortnight ago about how those plans were proceeding, Mr Palmer's response was: "I have no idea, I'm in parliament. I have retired from business."
Questions have also been sent to his media advisor, but with no response.
