Planning—shopping centres

(Question No 439)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 19 November 2009:

(1) What is the range of criteria for selecting shopping centres for upgrade under the Precinct Refurbishment Program.

(2) Which shopping centres have had a Final Design and Construction under the program referred to in part (1).

(3) Which shopping centres have had a Forward Design Study Completed.

(4) What is the current priority list of shopping centre upgrades and when do they expect to be completed.

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

(1) Shopping Centres are selected for upgrade under the Precinct Refurbishment Program according to the following criteria:

  • age of shopping centre and the condition of existing infrastructure and landscaping;
  • occupational health and safety issues and claims;
  • role and importance of the shopping centre;
  • whether a master plan study or neighbourhood plan is complete/near completion or not planned and the existing public places will not be subject to change in the foreseeable future;
  • whether performance of the shopping centre is likely to be significantly impacted as a result of new development approvals in nearby centres and the upgrade of public places can assist that centre in decreasing such impact;
  • a reasonable level of trader and lessee support;
  • support for public works from community groups (received through consultations, representations or media); and
  • crime related statistics indicating a need for public place improvements for community safety.
