In these cases, the need for a technical amendment will depend on the specific provisions of the individual concept plan taking into account their previous non statutory guideline status.

Planning—Downer shopping centre (Question No 1578)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 17 February 2011:

(1) Has the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) made any efforts to enforce the lease conditions in the vacant Downer Shopping Centre.

(2) What plans does ACTPLA have for the shopping centre.

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

(1) Yes.

(2) ACTPLA is working with the Department of Land and Property Services, in consultation with the Downer Residents Association, to broadly achieve the objectives of the draft Downer Centre Urban Design Study.

Planning—development applications (Question No 1579)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 17 February 2011:

(1) Does the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) make any effort to notify people who have previously lodged objections to development applications when a second development application is lodged for the same site.

(2) What follow up communications are there with those initial objectors to a development application and are they (a) told that the initial development application has been rejected, (b) informed when another development application has been lodged and (c) informed of the outcome of the second development application.

(3) Does ACTPLA consider that some changes should be made to the Planning and Development Act to ensure that interested parties, for example, those who have previously lodged objections to development applications, should be notified when a second development application is lodged for the same site.

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

(1) Development Applications (DAs) are notified in accordance with the Planning and Development Act 2007. The notification entails letters to adjoining properties for minor notification and in addition for major notification, a sign on the site and a notice in the Canberra Times. Each new DA is treated as a new DA.

(2) (a) Each person who makes a written representation within the notification period is advised of the decision for that DA.
