From the Letters editor, Canberra Times

"The monolithic ASIO headquarters slated for Constitution Avenue may be a fait accompli, but some readers remain upset about the approval process, particularly the alleged lack of public consultation. A letter from National Capital Authority acting chairman Don Aitkin claiming the plans had been subject to proper scrutiny failed to quell concerns, with two writers complaining that the building's siting and design was inconsistent with the National Capital Plan and the Griffin Legacy amendments."
