Planning System Shakeup

The Advertiser today posted a storey about the pending release of the interim report by the Expert Panel headed up by Brian Hayes QC which is expected to be the biggest shakeup of the planning system in SA in a generation.

The panel will be releasing their 172 page (more reading for this elected member) today at a luncheon I will be attending. The report will be released for the purpose of public consultation.

As someone involved in the building industry and as a Councillor I have particular interest in what they are proposing.

Rather than repeat what the “tiser” has suggested in  its article this morning I will await what the panel tells us at lunch time and report back to you accordingly.

As always, watch this space.

    You’re always on the ball Don.
    I’m keen to hear about the planning shake-up.

  2. Thanks Paul. I am deciphering what I have picked up and will blog, a least a summary without observation of whether I am in favour or not yet soon, hopefully tonight. Observations will follow when I have had a chance to determine the real impact on our community.
