Planning, Development and Infrastructure (State Planning Commission) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

Adjourned debate on second reading

(Continued from 18 October 2017)

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY (20:53): For the record, I indicate that I will be strongly supporting this amendment. It is absolutely essential in the peri-urban areas of South Australia that on the commission you need someone with rural planning or agricultural experience. I have had plenty of examples in recent days in the Barossa area where decisions have been made by planning assessment panels. They have had no rural experience and they just completely ignore any aspect of agriculture when it is up against urban areas. With that, I support the amendment.
