occupier's permission to enter, inform the occupier that he or she has the right to refuse and request that the occupier sign a Consent to Entry form;

(2) How many inspections were conducted by ACTPLA's Land Regulation Unit during 2006-2007;

(3) How many Consent to Entry forms were completed prior to inspections during 2006-2007;

(4) Given that the reverse of the Consent to Entry forms stipulate that lessees be informed by ACTPLA following an inspection whether a breach had or had not occurred, how many lessees were thus notified during 2006-2007.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Yes.

(2) ACTPLA's Land Regulation and Audit Unit received 1081 complaints during 2006-2007. Land Regulation and Audit Unit tracking systems do not have the reporting capacity to specifically report on those complaints that required inspections of the property. It should be noted that not all complaints require access to the site that is the subject of the complaint.

(3) Land Regulation and Audit Unit tracking systems do not have the reporting capacity to specifically report on the number of complaints that required Consent to Entry forms to be completed prior to inspections being undertaken. It should be noted that not all inspections require a Consent to Enter as large numbers of inspections are conducted from the public domain.

(4) Land Regulation tracking systems do not have the reporting capacity to specifically report on how many lessees were notified in writing during 2006-2007 however, the Land Regulation and Audit Unit has business rules in place that require written confirmation of the outcome of any inspection to be provided to the contact that is the subject to the complaint. This is not a requirement of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 and is provided as a courtesy to the subject of the complaint.
