The ABC brings word that the Liberal Senator Gary Humphries is taking up cudgels on behalf of hysterical Campbell residents upset about the vast new facility ASIO is building itself at the end of Anzac Parade.
- Senator Humphries says he is not sure it is the right building for an area which planners hope will become a grand boulevard.
“I think with these setbacks that we’re looking at with this ASIO headquarters I just can’t see that this is going to be compatible with the concept of that was designed by Burley Griffin and which has recently been reinforced with the Griffith Legacy concept which has been affirmed by the NCA,” he said.
National planners have dismissed claims the new headquarters will become a ‘barbed wire city’ in the heart of Canberra.
The spooks have posted lengthy details about their proposed building on their website.
