The Canberra Times reports that Mr Corbell believes both government agencies ACTPLA and the LDA) acted appropriately and that the registered bidders were responsible for due diligence, not the ACT Government.
â€œComplaints from Mr Snow are from a disgruntled developer concerned about a competitor entering the market:, Mr Corbell said.
Simon you also ignore everyone else who is complaining about the process. Playing Snowjob the man no longer washes with me. It is view emerging with others I have coffee with.
The information supplied by ACTPLA, eight days before the auction should have been given to the other parties which would have pushed the price up of the land further. It is obvious that unlimited building opportunities on the site would have generated heat in the marketplace.
By keeping mum on the advice provided by ACTPLA to one party, at worst smacks of something sinister in the dealings between your Government and developers or at best of gross incompetence in not getting a better deal for the ACT taxpayer.
The way you are dealing with the issue, placing your head in the sand, playing the man and not resolving the faults in your bureaucracy makes this Government look like something from the Joh era.
I thought you were doing a reasonable job at planning, but it seems that it is getting a bit much for you and you are looking tired these days. Some planning issues were taken off you over the last cabinet reshuffle. It is about time you did a portfolio swap and hand over the reigns to someone else and keep your law and order portfolio.
