The Goodwin Village development in Ainslie has been given the go-ahead after Planning Minister and RA commenter Simon Corbell used his call-in powers to cut the approval process short.
However he decided to cut the six-storey buildings in the original plans down to only four-storeys after “public submissions” (one wonders how much effect RA has had in this).
UPDATED: ABC Online has the news here.
FURTHER UPDATE: The Greens’ thoughts on the subject are now up.
“The ACT Greens however will continue to champion a genuinely inclusive process, which allows for community input rather than confrontation, and which explores creative solutions to conflicting interests, rather than simply limiting the political damage.”
