I have had several Albany residents mention their concerns over development projects.  In particular the granting of development licenses and then the developments being altered, or extended with a lack of public consultation.    

There is some development going on in Albany at the moment, which is great to see. Plus, the council have a comprehensive plan for many future developments.

 Development can be positive in so many ways, creating jobs and adding to the landscape of Albany.   Providing facilities and services that are needed. I understand residents concern around development and making sure it all works in conjunction with maintaining what is quiessental about Albany.  Public consultation is a core part of that process.     I have been looking into the various developments planned an in current construction around and in Albany. 

I will work with the council to understand how their public consultation process works and liase with the community so they know where to find the information and likewise I will advise the council on some alternative styles of communication so the public can be reached on various platforms.
