does this seem a little long in the process to anyone? Afterall the fires were nearly three years ago now.
is it that the residents have taken so long to put in the said plans? Or could it be uncertainty with planning laws? or simply the government not putting a high priority on this issue?
One must of course remember that not only were the fires nearly three years ago, but also that the government plastered advertising all over the Canberra Times for about two years after the fires telling everyone how well they were managing the rebuilding and where to get help, etc.
And we have also seen a blatent disregard for due process in the railroading of Ms Doogan, although I’m sure Mr Stanhope would put on his angry voice if anyone were to suggest it to him, oh, thats right, he already has.
