Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 5 Hansard (29 May) . . Page.. 1068..

MR GENTLEMAN (continuing):

These are well within the committee's broad terms of reference and they should not be taken as criticism of the work done on the proposed variation by the planning and land authority. They respond to the detailed concerns expressed by various stakeholders, some of which have been conveyed previously to the authority and some of which the authority addressed in its consultation report on the draft variation.

As previously mentioned, several recommendations concern matters likely to arise during the development assessment and construction phases of the proposed development. The committee would also have preferred to hear from stakeholders about the potential of the proposed development to enable partnerships to be fostered amongst the neighbouring lessees, including Kaleen high school, the proposed supportive housing complex and residents of the Huntington, rather than mainly from opponents to the proposed development and the developer. The final recommendation of the committee is that this proposed variation to the territory plan proceeds.

In closing, the committee would like to thank the previous Minister for Planning, Mr Corbell, and the stakeholders who assisted the committee during the course of this inquiry. I would also like to thank my fellow committee members, Mary Porter and Zed Seselja and the committee secretary, Hanna Jaireth. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
