Doubts Continue Regarding The Gillman Land Deal

Show Me The (Gillman) Money

State Opposition Leader Steven Marshall has demanded Premier Jay Weatherill come clean on whether the controversial Gillman land deal will proceed.

In April this year the Weatherill Labor Government paid $2.2 Million to settle a High Court case regarding their Gillman land deal.

Settlement required developer Adelaide Capital Partners (ACP) to pay $45 Million for the first stage of the Gillman development on or before 1 November 2016.

“Judgement day has arrived and it’s time for Premier Weatherill to come clean on whether his land deal is going ahead.” Mr. Marshall said.

“Has ACP given the State Government the $45 Million they committed to, or have taxpayers again been let down by Premier Weatherill’s dog of a deal?”

“Three years ago Premier Weatherill said he would create 6,000 new jobs at Gillman and since that time not one single job has been created by his deal.” Mr. Marshall said.

“How can South Australians trust Premier Weatherill to undertake a complex redevelopment of the current Royal Adelaide Hospital site when he couldn’t even sell a vacant piece of industrial land without an ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) investigation and High Court action?”
