Council blueprint approved

THE Property Council recently met with the lord mayors of the Australian capital cities and their senior staff.

The meeting was organised through the Council of Capital Cities Lord Mayors and provided the Property Council with an opportunity to preview its national capital cities agenda which advocates a better deal for the nation’s capitals.

This includes a larger financial and policy commitment from Federal and State Governments to the planning and development needs of the capital cities.

As a result of this meeting, the Property Council of Australia and the Council of Capital City Lord Mayors have joined forces and will fund a “leading discussion report” to demonstrate the significance of capital cities as engines of national economic prosperity.

A working group has been set up comprising representatives of the Property Council and capital city lord mayors.

The working group has issued a consultant’s brief for the preparation of the discussion report.

Its purpose will be:

• To facilitate a plan for the strategic integration of local, State and Federal Government policies with private sector investment to enhance capital cities

• To provide the intellectual foundation for a detailed program to demonstrate to all stakeholders the role of capital cities into the 21st century

• To deliver a document that can be used as a basis for government decision making for capital cities funding and development.

The WA Property Council report on Capital City Coordin-ation for the 21st Century, which has now been endorsed by Plan-ning Minister Graham Kierath, will form a component of this national study.

The study is due for completion in time for the next Council of Lord Mayors meeting on 16 July.
