Southern Outlet – City Deal Commitment

Thank you Mr Speaker, my question is to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.

Minister, on the 24th of February 2019, the State Government signed a historic city deal agreement with the Federal Government and the four greater Hobart councils.

As Mayor of Glenorchy at that time, I was a signatory to this deal, as was the Member for Franklin Mr Winter, who was then Mayor of Kingborough.

Have you breached this deal by ignoring the Implementation Plan which clearly states on page 10 that a concept options report would first be commissioned focussing on the existing footprint of the Southern Outlet?

Minister, if you are not in breach, where is this report?

Page 10 of the Implementation Plan also specifically details the requirement for extensive consultation.  Where is this extensive consultation?

Minister, Dynnyrne residents will be on the steps of Parliament today at 1:00pm. Will you have the courage to front up to them and listen to their concerns? Will you come out with me at lunchtime, speak to these people and tell them what is happening to their homes?
