CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct

 

 

A Country Liberal Party Government would build the national Aboriginal art gallery the Desert Park, not at ANZAC Oval, the party announced in a statement this morning.

Art gallery row: Town Council leaderless

 

Deputy Mayor Matt Paterson (at left) has declared an interest and the position of Mayor Damien Ryan (at right) remains unclear as the Town Council undoubtedly will deal with the latest upheaval surrounding the art gallery tonight. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Gallery row: Remember the dam?

 

 

If the gallery is built as fast as the flood mitigation dam at Junction Waterhole (pictured), then don't hold your breath. ALEX NELSON is looking at the similarities between the two projects.

Mayor Ryan misses council meeting, campaigns as CLP candidate

 

 

CLP Opposition announcement about candidate Damien Ryan is likely to further fuel the controversy about his conflict of interest. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Gallery opponents, grandstand friends

 

 

The opening of the Albrecht Oval grandstand this morning was an unlikely occasion to gain some clarity of the process – or lack of it – to find a place for the national Aboriginal art gallery. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Council: Gallery at Anzac precinct, no to curfew

 

The Town Council last night unanimously expressed its preference for the Anzac precinct as the location for the national Aboriginal art gallery provided the NT Government has received consent from the traditional owners. So far there is no evidence that it has been given. In another decision the council voted against the introduction of a youth curfew, proposed by Cr Eli Melky for the fifth time, but now with the support of Deputy Mayor Matt Paterson. MORE LATER.

Election 2020 salvos fired with Alice the first battleground

Compulsory acquisition of Town Council owned Anzac Oval for the art gallery is on the table. Mayor Damien Ryan position in council is compromised as a CLP candidate. Anzac High (at right) faces demolition starting Monday. But not all is bad in politics: Namatjira MLA Chansey Paech (at left) is adjusting to a re-jigged electorate and patiently pursuing resolution of the flagrant misuse of rural residential land.

Government firm on demolishing Anzac High: Lawler

 

The demolition of Anzac High School (pictured) will continue, says Minister Eva Lawler, the Minister responsible for the Department of Infrastructure, Planning & Logistics (DIPL). In reply to a shock statement from the ICAC yesterday she says getting a report on the refurbishment of the historic building "would have been a waste to taxpayers’ money". ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

 
UPDATE Friday 7.40am: Save Anzac High campaigner David Hewitt says he inspected the school last night and found no signs that the removal of asbestos had started, as claimed by Minister Lawler.

Gallery statement by ministers mischievous: Councillor

 

 

No one in their right mind would want to demolish a perfectly good building such as the current council civic centre, with the risk of burdening the community with a huge debt, writes Councillor Eli Melky.

Ministers lash out at council over gallery

 

The council is "divided, lacks leadership and individual Councillors have put their own political interests above the interests of the people of Alice Springs". MLA for Braitling, front-bencher Dale Wakefield (at left), and culture minister Lauren Moss (at right) respond to Tuesday's rejection of the gallery deal. Report by ERWIN CHLANDA.
