Question Without Notice No. 486 asked in the Legislative Council on 14 June 2018 by Hon Tim Clifford

Minister responding: Hon D.A. Templeman
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 14 June 2018


486. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Local Government:

I refer to the public consultation undertaken by the City of Swan regarding the Midland Oval redevelopment master plan, during which 67 responses were tabled. That represents just 0.34 per cent of the Midland ward population. Will the minister intervene and request the City of Swan to undertake a more complete consultation with the more than 140 000 City of Swan residents?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

As referred to in the answer to question without notice 433, the Midland Oval redevelopment project is a matter for the City of Swan. The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries is reviewing the city's process to ensure that there has been no breach of the Local Government Act 1995.
