David Hetherington on The Drum – 5 Mar 2018

“We have an appalling track record on planning in this country, largely because planning sits across three tiers of government…you’ve got some of it at your local government level…then you’ve got state government and some federal interplay so it’s very complicated…what state governments have done really poorly is sell off land that subsequently has proven to be very valuable…they didn’t keep it an develop it in ways that were constructive for social infrastructure.”
