Planning and Development (Project Facilitation) Amendment Bill withdrawn

This morning, the Chief Minister announced that this controversial Bill would be withdrawn.  The Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and TAMS issued two reports following its inquiry into the Bill.  The Chair’s report recommended ten changes to the Bill while an alternative report recommended that the Bill be rejected and a thorough inquiry be conducted into the planning system.  For more information, see http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/acts-fasttrack-planning-laws-withdrawn-20140509-zr7b0.html.
