Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 5 Hansard (29 May) . . Page.. 1117..

MR BARR (continuing):

The committee's ninth recommendation was that the planning and land authority insert an area specific overlay in part 2B town centre land use policies—commercial B for the Phillip pool site to require that the lessee of section 22 block 2 Phillip continues to provide a public 50-metre pool and an ice-skating rink. The substance of this recommendation is supported and a clause has been inserted into the land use policy for the site requiring the lessee to provide a 50-metre pool and an ice-skating rink.

The committee's 10th recommendation was that the site of the Phillip pool and ice-skating rink be included in the proposed detailed master plan for the Phillip oval site. This is also supported. Site planning for the block will be included in the Phillip oval master plan, with specific design guidelines for redevelopment.

The wording of the amendments to the preliminary assessment provisions has been changed slightly to avoid ambiguity or uncertainly regarding the areas to which the provisions apply. Further changes were made to the final variation in response to issues raised by me regarding the protection for sporting and recreational uses, control of the development around the Phillip pool site, and management of redevelopment of the pool site. The whole of the balance of the Phillip oval site, not including the two Launceston Street corner parcels, has been retained as restricted access recreation land use policy. An additional clause have been incorporated into the written statement for height control for precinct "b"areas north of Launceston Street to ensure that any development on the site adjoining Phillip pool does not impact on the use of the pool, particularly if it continues to operate as an outdoor facility.

I have tabled the response to the planning and environment committee report on draft variation No 259 to the territory plan. On behalf of my colleague Simon Corbell, the former planning minister, I take this opportunity to thank the committee for its detailed examination of this draft variation and for its report. The variation to the territory plan was approved by Mr Corbell on 16 April 2007 and I have now tabled it.

DR FOSKEY: I ask that the minister move that the report be noted.

MADAM TEMPORARY DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mrs Dunne): It is not a report, Dr Foskey; it is a disallowable instrument. You could perhaps ask that Mr Barr move that his statement be noted, but I am not sure what that would do because it is about a disallowable instrument.
