The ABC brings the happy news that the long abandoned, but occasionally re-fitted at great expense, Anzac Park West (big building at the end of Anzac Parade) has had a nibble from Defence who want to put 900 staff in there who don’t quite make the grade for office space in Russell.
- Public Works Committee Chair Mark Butler says the Department of Finance wants to spend $45 million to fit-out the offices to house 900 Defence Department staff.
“The public works committee will be considering that, including a public hearing in mid-July,” he said.
“We’ll assess that proposal according to its need and scope and value for money paid by taxpayers, and all those things being satisfied, finally Anzac Park West will be occupied.”
Wouldn’t want to move too fast would they?
