In this way we can ensure that we minimise and ultimately eliminate any inaccuracies, and that housing delivery happens smoothly,’ said Councillor Brett Herron, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-08-01T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#481461de-ccd2-4cc9-ad13-85b695810a1c;L0|#0481461de-ccd2-4cc9-ad13-85b695810a1c|information;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#d4ca5107-2ce1-4221-a982-6f70865b4950;L0|#0d4ca5107-2ce1-4221-a982-6f70865b4950|update;GP0|#02d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d;L0|#002d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d|BNG1
