Labor MP plans to reboot urban renewal scheme
Labor MP Anthony Albanese says the party will overhaul Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s city deals with a new scheme to promote urban renewal, if it wins the next election.
On Wednesday, the Shadow Cities Minister flagged changes Labor would make when it comes to the future of our cities.
He tells Deborah Knight the overhaul would engage all three levels of government to “ensure that we avoid the mistakes of the past”.
“It’s an enormous issue. It impacts on every one of your listeners if they live in a city like Sydney.
“They know that our roads are overcrowded, they know that there’s issues with community infrastructure… and that’s really a product of bad planning.
“What we’re promising with the City Partnership is it’s really essential that three levels of government would work together to ensure that we avoid the mistakes of the past.”
