Pique: In a perfect world what would you see in the next couple of years?
Wake: Well we have a new council. They are clearly very committed to addressing this issue. Weve had a very clear message from the community during the election that this was a big issue. Weve got some very workable tools in the land bank, some potential sites within the community, weve got developers who are willing and eager to produce this housing. So we have some excellent tools. In a perfect world, we would move steadily forward with these tools and continue to ensure a supply of accessible housing, both market and restricted, for our workforce.
In saying this, we have to remember that what we have today is really good and its not that we have to go and do something incredibly different. We need to protect the good thing we have going here and its not going to be one big solution, its going to be a series of sensible solutions.
