On 22 January 2015, the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption released a public statement announcing he was investigating the sale of State Government land at Gillman to determine if there was any evidence of maladministration.



On 14 October 2015, the Commissioner finalised and published his report into the sale of State Government owned land at Gillman.

The investigation found that South Australia’s Urban Renewal Authority, Renewal SA, had “engaged in maladministration in public administration, in that its practices resulted in a substantial mismanagement of public resources.”

The former Chief Executive of the Urban Renewal Authority, Mr Fred Hansen, and the former Chief Operating Officer, Mr Michael Buchan, were also found to have engaged in conduct that constituted maladministration.
