Torri Gardens sent its reply regarding its proposed LNG Gas storage facility. I’m glad this could be cleared out. At face value, the permit gives a different impression and admittedly I should have made more research on this, so apologies for the mistake. Growing pains.

The Company is committed to retain good neighbourly relations with the community and rebuts any unfounded
allegations that may disrupt the existing good relations. Contrary to what is being portrayed the property will
not be transformed into a LNG Storage Plant. The area will remain a residential complex with a number of
