"The controversial Nightcap Village is “prohibited” by Tweed Shire Council’s standards, according to a report to be tabled this week. It is expected the development application will be referred back to the Northern Regional Planning Panel for determination due its complexity, as recommended by council officers.The application is for a Rural Land Sharing Community and associated works over 21 lots which are to be subdivided into 11 lots, on an area of 1584.34 hectares which seeks approval for 392 dwelling plots over 10 lots to create 10 interconnected Rural Land Sharing Communities on Kyogle Road, Mount Burrell.The council staff recommendation is for the development application to be referred for determination based on this assessment report to the Northern Regional Planning Panel. If the panel decides it is not the determining authority, then the council’s general manager is delegated authority to determine the development application."

A Gold Coast real estate agent fell under the control of a multimillion dollar drug syndicate
The Courier Mail reports that Nightcap Village associate Eamon Lowe "pleaded guilty in Southport District Court on Tuesday to attempting to pervert the course of justice".
Judge Kefford sentenced Lowe to 18 months imprisonment with parole for presenting falsified documents to the court.
In July 2020, the 45-year-old Eamon Lowe had been charged in Southport Court with money laundering as part of a criminal syndicate operating an alleged cryptocurrency scam that had duped investors of over $3 million.
Police alleged that the criminal syndicate posed as multiple cryptocurrency sales companies which appeared to be legitimate, including Exmount Holdings Group, the Quid Pro Quo Foundation, the Atlas Group, AFG Associates Pty Ltd, Tradex123, Exmounttrading, Atlasfxgroup and Amazonaus.
The companies offered victims a trial investment, promising generous returns if they invested more, but when investors tried to withdraw their funds, the money wasn't there.
Police said the alleged crypto scam was just the tip of a criminal iceberg.
Eamon Lowe and Nightcap Village
Eamon Lowe has collaborated with Nightcap Development Team since 2016. He is a real estate agent and executive consultant with Christy's Prestige that, together with Ray White Real Estate, allegedly phoenixed property at 3222 Kyogle Rd as part of a proposed Nightcap Village development.

Nightcap Nightmare Blog, Editor's Comment:
Valuation of the property advertised as "Nightcap Village" determines whether the development application is decided by the Regional Planning Panel, or whether the DA will be determined by normal procedures by Tweed Shire Council, which has previously rejected the DA application and ruled that no further DA applications may be made by Nightcap developers. The pending application was slipped in under the radar during Christmas break.
Comment on the Daily Telegraph news report by local resident Jenny Leunig:
"Yee haaaa! Fabulous news!!!"
"A proposed development for multiple rural land sharing communities in Mount Burrell and Kunghur area will no longer be decided by the State, after it was found to be overvalued and containing unnecessary components.
The planned development, known as Nightcap Village and spruiked by controversial celebrity chef Pete Evans, is for an “intentional community” which would cater for almost 400 dwellings.

|Environmental Defender Scott Sledge heads local opposition to Nightcap "Hippyland"|
In a linked 2020 article by Sydney Morning Herald, the same venture is pinned to the town of Nimbin and disparaged as a "hippy commune" with sloppy, misleading reporting about the outcome of a defamation trial regarding Blogs published by Free Radical: Darwin v Norman.
The defamation charges were brought by Adrian Brennock (AB) and Phillip Dixon against journalist Gillian Norman (Gi Linda) representative of creditors who in 2016 published claims that Brennock's "development team" defrauded them in a land-share scam.
Judge Fagan determined that "folly not fraud" caused the "debacle".
To anyone well informed about the Bhula-Bhula-Nightcap scheme, both these Sydney Morning Herald articles are sad examples of badly researched yellow journalism, using the alluring "hippyland" pejorative to distract from many significant omissions and errors of fact.
April 17, 2021
A claim of "contumacious contempt of court" has been brought in NSW Supreme Court related to Nightcap Nightmare Blog, for revealing the "folly" of a prospective land-share scheme involving Adrian Brennock and Phillip Dixon.
A SLAPP action by Brennock and Dixon against Gillian Norman (Gi Linda) has been ongoing since 2017. "SLAPP" is an acronym for a "Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation," intended to inflict sufficient harm by abuse of legal process to obstruct opponents of a dominant commercial interest.
A 2020 NSW Supreme Court judgement by Fagan J against Gillian Norman in the defamation matter Darwin v Norman, determined that sale of Residential Lots by Mark Darwin, Adrian Brennock (aka Andrew Brennon, AB), Richard Moate and Phillip Dixon, with failure of consideration causing substantial loss and harm to investors, may be dismissed as "folly" not fraud.
Fagan J's orders also include a permanent prohibition on publication of certain opinions about the Bhula-Bhula-Nightcap venture, including claims that Brennock and Dixon deceive and defraud investors who consequently loose their life savings.
Extract from Orders:
"2017/00081825-001 Statement of Claim: Mark James Darwin v Gillian Linda Norman
Order Final judgment/order / Orders > made on 06 May 20 for proceeding 2017/00081825-001
2. The Defendant is permanently restrained from publishing or republishing, or causing to be published or republished, any matter which conveys the following imputations, or any imputations which are not substantially different than the following imputations:
(a) Adrian Brennock defrauded investors in the Bhula Bhula and Nightcap Village communities.
(b) Phillip Dixon defrauded investors in the Bhula Bhula and Nightcap Village communities.
(c) Adrian Brennock engaged in misleading or deceptive marketing of residential lots in the Bhula Bhula and Nightcap Village communities.
(d) Phillip Dixon engaged in misleading or deceptive marketing of residential lots in the Bhula Bhula and Nightcap Village communities."

Brennock and Dixon accuse Gi Linda of causing them financial loss. They claim it would be a breach of Court Orders if readers could infer from Nightcap Nightmare Blog that, from 2014 until 2021, investors have been deceived and misled by Brennock and Dixon in a fraudulent land-share venture involving sale of Residential Lots without development consent.
The contempt charge, Darwin v Norman was started in 2020 by Brennock and Dixon under the name of Mark Darwin who discontinued his defamation claim in 2019:  NSWSC 357.
The contumacious contempt trial is listed for May 14, 2021, in NSW Supreme Court before Judge Sackar. Gillian Norman, represented by barrister Kieran Smark SC, thanks to a referral from NSW Bar Association, does not admit the charges.
Nightcap Community acolytes are assured by promotors that suppressed information published online in Nightcap Nightmare Blog will be removed by Court order.

"The entire community owns everything and we will have a primary coupling, which is the enterprise Yidaki Pty Ltd that will own all of those landholding entities - and they are the ones progressing the approval. And then people buy shares within that company."
Phoenixing of property from Wollumbin Horizons to NCV Enterprises enables the promotors of the Nightcap land-share scheme to continue the same business of selling pre-DA dwelling sites, while divesting liability to creditors from 2014-2021.

March 27, 2021
A NSW Supreme Court judgement in the defamation matter Darwin v Norman, determined in 2020 that sale of Residential Lots without development approval in a Mt Burrell land-share venture, causing substantial loss and harm to investors, may be dismissed as "folly," not fraud.
After hearing evidence that nothing had been given in return for investment funds, Fagan J determined that disenfranchised investors who lost more than $2.5 million were just "dreamers".

"Most of you are aware of the existing DA approvals for 424 sites, and that over $2.1 million dollars was spent on the DA submission of last month, taking the project to over 850 spots."
