An investor in the CBD development, Geoff Thomson, has resigned from his position as director of HWCP – but he will leave his funding contribution made to date which is a “significant portion” of the $25 million previously committed to, the city council says. 

HWCP director Scott O’Donnell says the project has experienced a bit of a bump in the road it is still on track to continue.

“Geoff has dedicated a staggering amount of time, effort, energy and care into getting this project as far as it has, and our community should be incredibly grateful to him for that. We respect Geoff’s decision unreservedly,” O’Donnell says.
