Key business figures are continuing to attack Tony Abbott’s lack of an urban policy, with the Business Council of Australia today again calling for political leadership in this area.
In her speech to the National Press Club, BCA President Catherine Livingston stated that Australia required policies for, “the planning and prioritisation of infrastructure and the design and liveability of our cities and regions”.
Ms Livingston shares Labor’s aspirations for Australia’s metropolitan cities to become more creative, innovative and more prosperous, as well as Labor’s concerns about the danger of simply muddling through.
What’s clear is that the Abbott Government continues to be completely out of step with expert and stakeholder views in Australia.
Only Labor is committed to a national urban policy that supports our metropolitan cities and the people who live in them.
