Jamison Inn redevelopment

9 December, 2010

I’m confused.

There was a concertina display of knee-high boards in the Jamison Centre for about a week inviting people to participate in a consultation on the proposed redevelopment of the Jamison Inn. The display consisted of a map and an email address to which people could send … comments?

But within a few days of ACTPLA’s display being taken away I see that the old Jamison Inn has been plastered with signs advertising that apartments are now for sale at Space Macquarie.

Seems like the consultation was a mere box-ticking exercise and that the apartments were a done deal. It also seems that Canberra2030 (which I’ve previously blogged about at purecaffeine.com) is just a façade for an underlying attitude to planning which has remained fundamentally unchanged.

Look, I don’t give a shit about apartments going up there but don’t disrespect us by feigning consultation when you have no intention of doing anything with our feedback.
