Developer yanks Peachland proposal... again.

**UPDATE** As of Wednesday morning, Steve Allison and TNI Network say their development will NOT have a final reading before council, and will NOT be seeking a development permit. In an email to CBC, Mr. Allison writes "There is no step left for me other than to start all over again.  I'll take a few months to recharge myself, fully explore all my options, and then decide in the New Year where I go from here, both with respect to my proposed building and my companies' future in this town."


Last week, a developer planning a new building along the Peachland waterfront abruptly withdrew his development application. But this morning, there's confusion about whether the proposal is, in fact, back before council.

Steve Allison says he's frustrated by two last-minute changes made by city hall. The development had already passed three readings at council. Public comments received by council were largely in favour of the project. And so, the fourth and final reading was set for Wednesday.
