EAST Metropolitan MLC Donna Faragher says the McGowan government has taken too long to establish a working group to develop a master plan for Edith Cowan University’s Mt Lawley campus.
Last week Mrs Faragher asked planning minister Rita Saffioti in Parliament why it had taken so long, given the announcement the McGowan government was planning to move the campus into the city was made in September 2020.
“It has now been more than seven months since the government’s announcement that a working group would be established and nothing has happened,” Mrs Faragher said.
“All the minister could tell me was the working group was in the process of being established and its terms of reference, meeting dates and timeframes would be determined once the establishment of the group had been completed.a
“It’s important the local community is aware of what the government is planning, the consultation to be undertaken and how far the plan will reach into the surrounding area.
“The minister for planning needs to be transparent and deliver on her commitment to this community,” Mrs Faragher said.
