Thank your Mr Speaker
My question is to the Minister for State Development.
Minister in all of the various versions of the Macquarie Point Master Plans, and there has been a number, the Antarctic and Science Precinct has been the anchor tenancy and primary investment attractor.
Given the Macquarie Point Development Corporation’s failure to secure any commitment to fund the establishment of the precinct, from either political party at the federal election, it would seem that this proposal is dead in the water – at least for the next three years.
This has surely got to be a massive blow to the marketing and development plans for the site.
Minister, does this mean that Tasmanian’s will see the site sit idle for the next three years or do you have a back-up anchor tenant that will attract the investment the site deserves?
