KRS claims  inaccurate

BEFORE Matthew Knight puts pen to paper again and alleges I am taking the community and local groups to court (Progress Leader, August 16) he needs to get his facts right.

No one is taking community groups or the council to court.

It is also untrue to claim the Department of Human Services plans to redevelop the Kew facility with high-rise accommodation.

Boroondara Council has made an application to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Up until that point, my department has been co-operating with the council in relation to the planning approval process for the redevelopment of the Kew Residential Services site, and continues to do so.

Rob Hulls,

Minister for Planning.
