Reaffirming that if elected in March 2014, a Marshall Liberal Government will enable people to retain their shacks, while requiring them to be upgraded to meet contemporary standards.
The Weatherill Labor Government has once again confirmed their intentions to drive out
South Australia’s remaining holiday shacks.
Since 2002, the Weatherill Labor Government has increased lessee’s rental rates by 500 per cent.
“Shacks in our nation are a great tradition and it would be very disappointing to see them disappear in this State as a result of the Weatherill Labor Government’s continued tyranny,” said Shadow Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Michelle Lensink.
“The Weatherill Labor Government has ramped up all shack fees since it came to office, in a secretive attempt to drive people out of them. It has no plan to allow people to upgrade shacks so that future generations can continue to enjoy them.
“The State Liberals support shacks because the families who utilise them are both good environmental stewards and form communities that support a healthy lifestyle.
“If elected in March 2014, a Marshall Liberal Government will enable people to retain their shacks, while requiring them to be upgraded to meet contemporary standards.
“Where local councils are very supportive of their shacks and have shown leadership in investing in local facilities for the benefit of the whole community, a Marshall Government will enter a partnership arrangement to transfer care, control and management of life lease shacks to local Councils, in exchange for shack upgrades.
“A Marshall Liberal Government will have better priorities to put our State back on track.”
