Jon Stanhope is back to prime comedic form, praising the retiring Chair of the Land Development Agency (LDA) John Haskins:
“Mr Haskins joined the LDA Board at a critical time and his industry expertise was instrumental in driving the development of new land releases and in preparing an ambitious but necessary land release program,” Mr Stanhope said.
“Land is a major component in the cost of housing and the significant increase in the supply of serviced land has played an important part in the success of Government’s Affordable Housing Strategy;
Mr Haskin’s role at the LDA has been a key to that success.”
One would hate to see what an unsuccessful Affordable Housing Strategy would have looked like.
