Minister slammed over gas hub shift
The West Australian
Planning Minister John Day has been accused of improperly using his powers after amending planning processes to give himself sole authority over approvals for the controversial gas hub development at James Price Point.
Broome Shire President Graeme Campbell confirmed this afternoon that Mr Day had “seen fit to take away from the Shire all planning decisions in relation to the proposed gas precinct” and that he was allowed to do so under the Planning Act.
