Greens concerns over Planning Bill remain

The Planning and Development Amendment Bill 2020 today passed both houses of Parliament.

The Bill provided some long overdue planning reform, but also created a new streamlined approvals process for large developments that sits outside of regular planning law.

Among a number of other concerns, this Bill allows the Minister for Planning to direct another government agency to do things that would otherwise be illegal.

Hon Tim Clifford, Greens Spokesperson for Planning:


511. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Minister for Environment:

I ask this question on behalf of Hon Diane Evers, who is on urgent parliamentary business.

I refer to the minister’s response to my question without notice 226 on 17 March 2020.

(1)  Of the 871.78 volunteer hours registered for 2019–20 to March, how many were in the south west region and how many volunteers did it relate to?
