More power to the Planning Minister – whose idea was that?

The State Government introduced a new Bill into Parliament last week, which sets out how the new planning laws will be implemented.

The Statutes Amendment (Planning, Development and Infrastructure) Bill 2016 will not only pave the way for the implementation of the Planning Development and Infrastructure Act 2016, it will also make changes to the Act itself.  The changes include decreasing further the role of the yet-to-be-formed State Planning Commission, while increasing the powers of the Planning Minister!

The alert from Kelledy Jones Lawyers gives the first detailed summary of the Bill and what it entails.
