Former Christian Heritage Party leader and pedophile Graham Capill is still "an undue risk to the safety of the community'', the parole board says.

Capill, a former police prosecutor, was sentenced to nine years prison in 2005 for child sex offences.

His latest bid for parole, his third, was declined as he has not undergone any sex offender treatment programmes while in prison.

"The Board concludes that if released now, with approximately four years and nine months of his sentence remaining, without the benefit of treatment... Mr Capill would pose an undue risk to the safety of the community,'' the Parole Board decision said.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
