There have been some interesting developments around housing in the last few days, which I will sum up in a future blog post. However, I did like this quote from Cr Jamie Gough, in a story about development contributions:

Gough, who in July successfully got a 100 per cent rebate on development contributions for those building within the four avenues, said a “rethink” was required.

“These are the sort of stories we don’t want to be hearing in our rebuild of the city.

We should be rolling out the red carpet and not the red tape for developers,” he said.

Yup, that is the same Jamie Gough who is the nephew of rich-lister developer Antony Gough. Good to see the Goughs working so hard to fight for those poor, downtrodden developers.
