Sadly, the Major Projects Bill has been passed by both houses of parliament. We note that the government has, on a number of occasions, said that this legislation will not be used for highrise towers. However, the legislation could allow such buildings.

Many thanks to the hundreds who made submissions against the proposed Major Projects legislation.
