Mayor Glenn Milne (inset) says the State Government is holding up development in outer Mildura by sitting on two planning amendments.

PROCRASTINATION by the State Government over planning regulations is hindering development in Mildura’s outer areas, according to Mayor Glenn Milne.

Planning Minister Richard Wynne has yet to determine a planning amendment submitted and supported by ­Mildura Council in December last

Cr Milne said two amendments had come under rigorous community and council scrutiny before being sent to the government, but one still needed to be “ticked off” to ­allow the community to “get on with it”.
