Housing—affordability (Question No 1627)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 7 April 2011 (redirected to the Minister for Land and Property Services):

(1) What housing developments does the 20 percent affordable housing target apply to.

(2) Does the 20 percent affordable housing target only apply to greenfield developments; if so, how does the Government define greenfield.

(3) Did the Minister state, in a response to a question during question time on 29 March 2011, that we are moving to apply that 20 percent rule universally and that it is universally applied; if so, can the Minister explain what that means, and to which areas it is universally applied to.

(4) Did the Minister mention, in a response to the question referred to in part (3), that 20 percent of land in Dickson is public housing; if so, does that mean that there is an intention to have suburb-wide affordable housing targets.

(5) Did the Minister state that he would make a full list available of where exemptions to application of the affordable housing target have been made, and reasons for those exemptions; if so, is that list available yet.

(6) Does the 20 percent affordable housing target only apply to developments where the land was sold by the ACT Government in the last few years and it was a lease condition; if so, when did the Government start including affordable housing targets as part of the lease conditions and are there any land sales where the 20 percent housing affordability target is not required.

(7) How does the 20 percent affordable housing target apply to new suburbs and estates which may have a mixture of single residences and multi-unit development.

(8) How are conditions for developers to meet such requirements applied.

(9) How are the conditions applied where government agencies sell single blocks of land.

(10) How are affordable housing conditions placed on private developments which are being built on land not previously owned by the ACT Government.
