Responding to the State Budget

Another budget, another missed opportunity to deliver critical infrastructure for our global city. The Government has collected billions in stamp duty from the inner city but failed to use it to fund the critical infrastructure we so desperately need.

Particularly in Green Square, which once completed will be home to an extra 60,000 new residents and 20,000 new jobs – but we’re yet to see a commitment for new schools or transport.

The Government is enjoying the stamp duty rewards – it's high time they start providing the essential services to match, starting with public transport and schools.
