Committee overview

Below, committees are grouped by the proportion of developer-connected contributions received by their members in their most recent election. Note: Ex Officio members of committees are excluded from this analysis, as the convention is they do not vote at committee meetings.

Role of Planning Committee/ARAC

Planning Committee and the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee (ARAC) come into focus as one considers the influence of development industry contributions in elections. Planning Committee and ARAC make decisions on the merits of development applications and policy with an urban and rural focus, respectively. These committees had the highest share of developer-connected donations.

See the list of top donors for details on how many campaign contributions are connected to major development industry stakeholders like Taggart Group and Richcraft, and how many members of Planning Committee and ARAC each of these stakeholders have been connected to.
