CITY of Vincent mayor John Carey has slammed a Property Council of Australia report released this week, calling it “sloppy” and “simplistic.”

The State Labor candidate for Perth took to Twitter today to air his grievance with the report, which gave the City an 11.3 point score out of 20 for its implementation of planning schemes.

The report showed 59 per cent of planning applications were processed in 60 days or less and that its planning scheme was 18 years old.

“The @WA_Property report on for (sic) local gov planning is wrong for @CityofVincent: our Planning Scheme was reviewed & still waiting for approval,” Mr Carey tweeted.

The independently compiled report revealed only two of 29 Perth local governments were up to scratch with planning performance.

Town of Cambridge came in last on the list.
