When in doubt, announce a study.
Mr. Stanhope has just announced a study (to cost $100,000) of what to do with the iconic, and privately owned, Sydney and Melbourne buildings.
- The Strategic Project Facilitation group in the Chief Minister’s Department will coordinate the study in conjunction with Canberra CBD Limited and relevant Government agencies including the Department of Territory andMunicipal Services and the ACT Planning and Land Authority.
When they’re looking good those buildings are an absolute ornament to the city so it’s hard to disagree as to their importance.
Just a shame we can’t get the owners to take better care of their assets.
UPDATED: Well on tonight’s TV news bulletins the Chief Minister appears to have realised that the Canberra Centre is hurting the rest of the city.
Did he really not see that coming?
