government consulted councils months after announcing commuter car parks in their patch

Sumary of Government consulted councils months after announcing commuter car parks in their patch:

  • Hume City Council’s chief executive Sheena Frost said the council identified extra parking at Craigieburn station as a priority in 2013 and advocated for it since.
  • The Victorian government announced funding for the same project a year earlier than the Commonwealth, in April 2018.Loading“There was no consultation with Council prior to the Australian government’s publicly announcing funding,” Ms Frost wrote in the Senate submission.
  • In junior minister Jason Wood’s seat of La Trobe, Cardinia Shire Council’s planning coordinator Anita Ransom said the now-complete upgrades at Beaconsfield station and a planned car park at Pakenham “do not go against and are not in conflict with Council’s strategic intentions for these sites”.
  • However, she said the council had no input into the projects.
  • “No formal consultation was undertaken with Council prior to the announcement of commitments .
  • For both Beaconsfield and Pakenham railway stations, Council was informed by the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) that the upgrades were to occur,” she wrote.
