Zed’s response to the budget

By johnboy 7 May 2009 6

Liberal Leader Zed Seselja has made his reply to the 2009 ACT Budget.

In a million years or so, long after we are all dust, the slovenly ACT hansard service will report his words to the giant lizard-men who will then rule the world.

In the meantime Zed has produced some highlights of which making life easier for property developers is his first order of business, followed by a desire to “plan a better Canberra”.

He’s also promising an “Infrastructure Canberra” plan (which will apparently be a slash and burn of development regulation, see point one).

There’s also mention of a future “Concept Plan” revolving around more people living in the city centres.

Zed has a bit of a pop at the planned long-haul deficits and then finishes thusly:

    “We, on the other hand, have plans for sensible savings, as well as plans for better infrastructure delivery, streamlined planning, less red tape, more front line resources, and better delivery of services in health and education,”

What’s Your opinion?

Considering the proofs for the 5th and 6th are up on their website, and presumably the proof for the 7th will be there today or tomorrow, I’m not sure I would call that ‘slovenly’.

I’ve been working in Canberra almost a decade, and this is the first time I actually wanted to know what the Opposition response to a Territory budget was.

Mr Rudd’s government has repeatedly stated they will implement Gershon Report recommendations. Including the one about requiring Commonwealth IT systems to be developed and operated OUTSIDE of Canberra.

IMHO the Libs missed a golden opportunity to needle the ACT government on what impact that might have to the local economy.

You’d be hard pressed to beat the Stanhope governments existing subversion of the planning regulations short of just telling devlopers to do what they like and let ACTPLA know when their finnished.
