10 April 2020
While I wrote a post last week about the change in Council services I did not expect to read in today's paper an item regarding planning changes in the context of COVID -19. Unley, as I'm sure are other Councils, is doing its best to keep every staff member in job as long as they can. This would include the Planning team preparing to have the April DAP being run through Zoom or similar but at the same time as originally scheduled and with the same agenda items. I see no reason for there to be a hold up. I am, therefore, perplexed that DPTI should be considering fast tracking development applications to keep construction workers in a job. Where is the evidence that major development, or even extensions (which seem to be the bulk of Unley's work) are being delayed?
