In August this year, Minister Dale Wakefields office told Alice Springs media that a comprehensive business case for the National Aboriginal Art Gallery would be completed by the end of November. The tender for the business case also set a November 28 deadline, Mr Higgins said. Now, and only after questioning by the media (Alice News), project implementation team interim director Dr Mark Crees has confirmed the business case development time frame by Ernst and Young has been extended with a draft due in early 2019. The business case has been delayed and the site is still under question when will the government get its act together with this project? Opposition Leader Gary Higgins asked. The government and council appear to be locked in an impasse over the site with each claiming to be waiting on the other. And will the government be more open with Alice Springs residents about the details? Will they release the business case once its done or hide behind a commercial-inconfidence label? They are bungling this just as theyve bungled youth crime and detention, alcohol reform and the economy. And their fall back is to always blame the previous government. The Territory has had a Labor regime for more than two years its time they started taking some responsibility for their blunders. Opposition Leader Gary Higgins. 06 NEWS TUESDAY DECEMBER 11 2018
