Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 14 Hansard (11 December) . . Page.. 4738..


MS McRAE (continuing):

I personally think that Manuka will be enhanced by this development. I believe that that was the intent of the original proposal. The idea was to put it out for public scrutiny through the expressions of interest process. That does allow for full public airing of the possibilities. This could have been done quite differently, quite quickly, as things are within the purview of the Territory Plan. I think we have been offered a way to look at these things before they happen and now, with the proposed amendments, perhaps when they actually do happen, and in doing so offer the general public the type of analysis and research that does go on before these decisions are made. It is not always necessarily made public. That will reassure people that neither Mr Humphries, nor I, nor anyone else in this Assembly, is intent on willy-nilly destroying one shopping centre in the ACT.

Amendment agreed to.

Debate (on motion by Mrs Carnell) adjourned.
