Constituency Question: Kew Residential Services Development Agreement

Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 11:15am
Speaker:
Sue Pennicuik

Sue Pennicuik (Southern Metropolitan) My question is for the Minister for Major Projects, and it is in regard to the Kew Residential Services development agreement, about which I asked her a question last year. The minister did respond to me, saying that Major Projects Victoria (MPV) had agreed to an extension with Kew Development Corporation until 27 April 2018, and the letter had been sent to them by MPV on 22 June. However, on the government's contract publishing system website, the sixth deed of variation was not actually signed until 9 December, which was six weeks after the expiration of the current contract on 27 October 2016. My question to the minister is: what was the cause of the delay in signing the deed and will that have any implications down the track?
