CanDo has already made a strong start in getting the Night Garden back on track by delivering all of the actions committed to in his First 100 Days Action Plan.
Delivery of these commitments clearly shows that what he promises, he will deliver.
In going beyond the first 100 days, and recognising the difficult decisions that CanDo has to make as highlighted by the Commission of Audit Interim Report, it is vital to continue to share our plans with the Night Garden and set out clear delivery targets.
CanDo is cutting red tape and regulation, speeding up project approvals for business to help get the Night Garden’s economy growing and creating jobs. Encouraging more business activity and more jobs creation is key to getting the Night Garden back on track.
This six month action plan sets out the way forward by building confidence in our economic future, increasing certainty for industry and delivering on the five pledges made to the residents of the Night Garden.
CanDo is committed to getting the Night Garden back on track by balancing the budget, achieving our four per cent unemployment target and continuing to oppose the impost on Night Garden businesses and communities that comes with the introduction of a price on pollution.
This plan sets out the priorities and deliverables for the next six months and will be the next yardstick used to measure CanDo progress in returning prosperity, accountability and opportunity to this Garden.
CanDo is committed to delivering the following actions over the next six months:
- The Tomliboos will be given the option to be registered;
- The Haahoos have all been sacked because they are not frontline;
