Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate at centre of Crime and Corruption Commission investigation

Queensland's corruption watchdog has confirmed it is investigating allegations Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate influenced council decision-making for personal benefit, failed to declare possible conflicts of interest, and did not disclose flights and accommodation received from a Chinese developer within the required timeframe.

Last week, the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) announced a new investigation, "into allegations of corrupt conduct relating to decision-making by some Gold Coast City Council councillors".

"The allegations broadly involve possible conflicts of interest relating to decisions on a range of development matters on the Gold Coast," the CCC said.

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

No councillors were named in the announcement of the probe.

The ABC can reveal the corruption watchdog is investigating eight complaints lodged by the community group Save Surfers Paradise, including the decision-making surrounding a development proposed by a company the Mayor has a 50 per cent stake in.

The group alleged to the CCC, "Councillor Tate did not fully disclose his material personal interest" in the "Waterglow" development during a 2013 meeting of council that considered an application for the project.

The 56-level apartment tower would be built on the site of the old Surfers Paradise bowling club greens and is being proposed by Crestden Pty Ltd.

At the 2013 meeting, Cr Tate declared a material personal interest because he was a shareholder of Crestden, and he left the chamber.

However, the complaint to the CCC said the Mayor failed to reveal his shareholding in Crestden amounted to 50 per cent, which they claim is a violation of the Local Government Act.

he's as corrupt as they get. I hope they throw him in jail
I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.
