Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 9 Hansard (16 August) . . Page.. 2741..

MR CORBELL (continuing):

consultation is based on comments received during the public notification period. However, this recommendation is a sensible one and will be accommodated in future consultation reports presented to the committee. I commend the variation to the Assembly.

Territory plan-variation No 258

Paper and statement by minister

MR CORBELL (Molonglo-Minister for Health and Minister for Planning): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Land (Planning and Environment) Act, pursuant to subsection 29 (1)-Approval of Variation No 258 to the Territory Plan-Section 48 Belconnen-Belconnen Labor Club, dated 16 August 2005, together with background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any direction or report required.

I seek leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: Draft variation No 258 proposes a minor boundary realignment to include 157 square metres of land into the commercial area of the Belconnen town centre. The boundary change will benefit the existing club on block 10 section 48 Belconnen. The effect of the variation is to exclude the small area of land from the municipal services land use policy and include it in the commercial B town centres land use policy under precinct "b", which is the business area.

This variation was released for public comment on 16 April this year. Comments closed on 9 May this year. Two written submissions were received. Mr Hargreaves, as Minister for Urban Services, made a submission in support of the proposal, in principle, with the proviso that the lessee of block 10 section 48 be responsible for matters including relocating any services and rectifying any areas of landscaping of unleased territory land that may be disturbed as part of any service relocation or future development. The issues that Mr Hargreaves raised will be appropriately addressed in lease and development conditions for the land.

A submission from the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services noted that the land is not capably of being used for any other form of development and, in the circumstances, the variation is appropriate. No revisions were made to the variation as a result of the consultation process. In its report No 11 of this year, the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment made no comments on the variation. I commend the variation to members.
