Simon Corbell is all a quiver after an appeal which was stalling plans to provide Giralang with a nice new shopping complex was dismissed by the Court of Appeals today.
Check out our Giralang Shops tag and just look at how long this saga has been going on for.
Giralang’s supermarket closed in 2004, I bet the locals residents have missed it somewhat.
“I welcome this decision by the Supreme Court which is a win for the local residents of Giralang.
“This means that development can at last begin on a shopping complex that meets the needs of the local community,” Mr Corbell said.
“The Giralang shops have been in disarray for a number of years and today’s decision will draw this to a close. The plan to rebuild the shopping centre was stalled after a challenge to my call-in powers for the proposal in 2011,” Mr Corbell said.
In July 2012, the development at the Giralang shops was given the green light following a decision of the Supreme Court however today’s judgement by the Court of Appeals upholds Justice Burns’ decision.
The judgement of the Court of Appeal found that the decision of July 2012 was correct in deciding that the appellants lacked standing to apply for judicial review.
