MR SMYTH (continuing):

are unique—and there are other places, other streets, in the ACT that perform the functions of villages and have their own unique local environment—we need to protect them because they are important to the way we see ourselves, and indeed the way in which they influence other parts of the community.

Planning—subordinate legislation

Ministerial statement

Debate resumed.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (4.08): I will conclude my comments shortly on this matter. I made a large number of comments before the suspension for lunch. The ministerial statement put forward by the minister outlines an important range of matters to do with administration in the territory. I note Mr Seselja's comments in response where he sought to try and tar the work of the ACT planning authority with very poor practices in place in places such as Wollongong City Council. I think Mr Seselja fails to understand the point that the minister and indeed the Labor government have sought to make, and that is that we should not see elected officials involved in decisions on individual development applications unless there are exceptional circumstances.
