WESTERN AUSTRALIAN PLANNING COMMISSION — PLANNING APPLICATIONS —MANDOGALUP AND HAMMOND PARK
Hon TIM CLIFFORD
to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:
I refer to an ABC Online article dated 2 August 2017 about a proposed residential development in Mandogalup that reports that the Environmental Protection Authority has recommended further investigation to identify sources of dust. Given the sensitivity of this development and the high level of community interest, the need for transparency in all aspects of decision‑making is critical. I ask this question in response to concerns raised by community members.
(1) Has Mr Eric Lumsden, Chair of the Western Australian Planning Commission, accepted corporate hospitality from the developer of this project, Mr Nigel Satterley, over the past five years?
(2) If yes, what was the total value of that corporate hospitality?
(3) Would the minister please provide the dates on which Mr Lumsden has presided over a planning application from Mr Satterley for this or any other property development in the Mandogalup or Hammond Park area over the past five years?
(4) On any of the occasions above, did Mr Lumsden declare a pecuniary interest in the matter, and did he recuse himself from any of those meetings?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY
On behalf of the minister representing the Minister for Planning, I thank the member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided by the Department of Planning.
(1)–(4) Mr Lumsden was appointed Chairman of the Western Australian Planning Commission on 27 November 2012. He presided over WAPC meetings from this date. Mr Lumsden accepted hospitality from the Satterley group on seven occasions for industry events over this period, worth $1 145.
I seek leave to table the attached planning applications considered by the WAPC in the Mandogalup and Hammond Park areas since 27 November 2012.
Leave grated. [See paper 417.]
