    Appropriate planning for any community is a hallmark of how society develops and grows.
    Unfortunately planning in WA has been caught out a number of times with a population growth that could not be caught up with.
    Many said…“well who would have seen the mining boom coming, so how could the government plan for it?”

    And there is some truth in that.

    But it’s the governments job to look at ALL potential outcomes.

    Road-traffic problems obviously are seen by us all, but what about hospitals (10 year build lag), schools in developing suburbs (5year build lag) and green space and recreation space in the inner infill areas (can’t say there is a lag because new green space cannot actually be added).

    So the 2021 election cycle brings to us all a relevant question of “are we happy with the planning outcomes of our government?” And what is in store for us 2021 -2031?

    WA governments have been subject to intensive lobbying activities in past years and a lobbyist register was bandied about to quell some concerns.
    However, some people feel that the absence of information about such scrutiny and oversight means that lobbyists have been welcomed back with a red carpet.

    Let’s be clear about this…lobbying activity is at the heart of corruption in government.

    Another aspect of lobbyists is that they play on a ground that is completely uneven for the rest of the community…can “the rest of us” have rights to change a ministers mind within his/her actual parliamentary office? I don’t think so.

    So let’s stamp out “lobbying” and we will be on the road to stamping out corruption
