“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.
