Zed Seselja has put out a press release about Simon Corbell’s varying the Territory Plan to allow a seven-storey development in Deakin.
This is despite the Planning and Environment Committee, which includes some of Mr Corbell’s own Labor colleagues, recommending only three to five storeys in the area.
The Planning Minister has also apparently ignored a petition of 450 Deakin residents opposing the proposed development on the Embassy Motel site.
Basically this is a fairly ordinary complaining presser, but I do like Zed’s new nickname for Corbell: Seven Storey Simon. More poetic than Earring Boy I think, and rather appropriate given his recent spate of high rise approvals.
(The Libs were getting poetic today, with Jacqui Burke also telling us all is not well at Ainslie Village)
