    6. Biggest Success in 12 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Here is a testimonial from our client Dorothy March. Red Tape Busters have been fighting a Queensland Council for Dorothy and her family now for 3 years. Through the expertise of Red Tape Busters Director, Shane Bowering and his dogged determination to hold Council accountable Shane has realised the biggest lobbying success since our commencement 12 years ago – simply a stunning result. Dorothy’s words sum it all up perfectly – “Dear Shane, I just want to thank you on behalf of the March family for your wonderful efforts in assisting us in our long running fight with Council. This has been a long three years and at no stage did you give up and you patiently fought Council every step of the way. Not only did you win us a combined $455000 in compensation but you also had a massive win for us in relation to our building dispute with Council which has resulted in an approximate increase in value of our property as a direct result of your intervention of around $250000. We can’t thank you enough for your fantastic efforts. Without you, Council would have essentially destroyed the value of our property and left us emotionally and financially shattered. We all have appreciated your efforts.-

      Dorothy March and the whole March Family.”
