Is there any body in Canberra as maligned as the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA)?
The ABC reports that Mr Stanhope has promised his new developer friends that he’s going to take a look at how the authority goes about its business.
- ‘”In these times we will begin to see our unemployment rate rise, we will begin or see the economy continuing to slow and I’m determined that it not be anything that the Government does or doesn’t do that costs anybody in Canberra a job.”
“We’ve committed to a complete review essentially of our operations and the way in which we operate timelines, planning processes, statutory approvals and our responsibilities for ensuring at this particularly difficult time – having regard to the global financial crisis – that we the Government do everything that we can do to assist in the stimulation of the economy.”‘
Fire up those bulldozers boys.
