Paper and statement by minister
MR BARR (Molonglo—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Planning, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation and Minister for Gaming and Racing): Pursuant to the resolution of the Assembly of 17 November 2010, I present the following paper:
Territory Plan—Proposed Technical Amendment (2010-31)—Government response.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
MR BARR: An Assembly resolution of 17 November called on the government to do a number of things with regard to the technical amendment process for the territory plan. The first call on the government was for it to explain how it determines which amendments to the territory plan are technical and which are not. On 26 November I provided that information to the Speaker, noting that under the legislation it is the ACT Planning and Land Authority, not the government, that determines which amendments to the territory plan are technical and which are not.
The second call on the government was for it to consider a range of amendments to the technical amendment process. I have just tabled the government response to this part of the resolution.
The resolution also called on the government to provide a more detailed explanatory statement for classifying the amendments in technical amendment 2010-31 as technical amendments. I will be happy to provide the basis for an ACTPLA decision once the authority has made its decision on the technical amendment. I note that both the opposition and the Greens sought and received briefings from ACTPLA on this technical amendment process.
Ms Burch presented the following paper:
ACT Young People's Plan 2009-2014—Progress report 2010.
