Justin Madden allowed ‘Labor mate’ to oversee Windsor approval process

JUSTIN Madden approved a senior Labor figure for the job of overseeing an audit of the planning process that approved the Windsor Hotel redevelopment.

Graeme Holdsworth, who’s worked for federal Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner and state Housing Minister Richard Wynne, was appointed to a planning advisory committee in December.

The committee was set up after a leaked email from the Planning Minister’s then media adviser suggested a fake public consultation in a pre-election strategy to bury the project.

In Parliament, the Opposition seized on the revelation.

Planning spokesman Matthew Guy said Mr Holdsworth was a “rolled-gold Labor mate” and the planning process a sham.
