Cr. Ross Lee from Mitchell Shire has slammed the Government's Development Assessment Committees and contacted other councils urging them to follow his council's lead in condeming the DAC's.

Mitchell Shire Council believes that they are unnececessary, undemocratic,and a breach of the separation of powers, setting a dangerous precedent for government in Victoria.

The DAC's will strip planning power from councils as a band aid move to prop up the terminal Melbourne 2030 disastrous blueprint aimed to force us to live a high-rise/high-density lifestyle.

BRAG can only agree with Cr. Lee.
