In a move which will only raise the temperature in the ongoing Data Centre debate, the ACT Gov are auctioning one of the more suitable alternate blocks that have been identified.
Block 20, Section 23, Hume, a 12 hectare block opposite Gull but towards Mugga Lane, is listed for auction on the 8th of August.
This will of course neatly forestall any potential move of the Data Centre from its current disputed site to one more reasonable.
Have the powers that be totally lost any political acumen?
And doesn’t August 8 coincide with the opening of a fairly newsworthy event somewhere to the north of us?
