Beyond the expected

Details on the Gungahlin job transplant

By johnboy 2 May 2011 21

Following on from Andrew Barr’s tweet based announcement the Chief Minister has now published a media release on the subject.

“The ACT Government will establish a presence in Gungahlin by moving 500 public servants to a new Government office block that will be built in the region’s town centre,” Chief Minister and Minister for Land and Property Services, Jon Stanhope announced today.

“This move will create local jobs for Gungahlin’s 42,000 residents and generate economic activity for the surrounding businesses.”

The 7,000sqm office complex is expected to house 500 public servants and include on-site parking.

The coming ACT Budget will invest $150,000 for a study into the estimated cost and design of the building as well as the preferred site and tenants.

Just who will be exiled is yet to be determined. Which could be a great spur to drive cooperation with the Hawke reforms.

Gungahlin provides a great opportunity to live sustainably.

Zuh? How so?

I think they mean that they already live in Gungahlin and if there were jobs in Gungahlin, they could then live and work in the same area… and they could live sustainably. I can relate to that.
