Westfield did not meet with Minister Beamer
22 July 2004
Westfield made its opposition to Orange Grove Road clear in submissions to Liverpool Council, the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources, and Planning Minister Craig Knowles, but did not meet with Diane Beamer and made no submission to her.
Westfield and the Shopping Centre Council of Australia have held several meetings, and made numerous submissions, to the Government and Opposition in recent years on precisely these types of planning issues.
It is vital that government planning policies are clear, and do not alter substantially over time in a way that allows ad hoc development or irregular developments that are outside accepted planning guidelines.
