Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 8 Hansard (18 August) . . Page.. 3602..

(3) There are a range of impediments to establishing a Builder's Waste Recycling facility, including zoning, noise, dust, servicing and proximity to residential areas. However, the LDA is confident these issues can be resolved and intends to call for proposals from the private sector to run the facility before the end of the year.

(4) As required for EnviroDevelopment certification, the LDA is targeting recycling or reuse of at least 60 per cent of all civil and built form construction waste. However, it should be noted that the LDA is not able to compel builders to use the on site Builder's Waste Recycling Facility. The LDA will, in conjunction with the operator of the facility, undertake a marketing and education program to ensure all builders in Wright and Coombs are aware of the facility and the benefits of utilising it.

Planning—Coombs (Question No 1676)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Economic Development, upon notice, on 30 June 2011:

(1) What progress has there been in developing the Estate Development Plan for Coombs.

(2) When will it be available for public input.

(3) Will ACT agency comments also be available to the public.

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

(1) A draft Estate Development Plan (EDP) for Coombs has been prepared and circulated to relevant ACT agencies. Comments are currently being addressed with a view to re-submitting the EDP to the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate in July 2011.

(2) Subject to agency endorsement, the EDP may be submitted as a Development Application (DA) in August or September 2011, at which point it will be publicly notified. It should be noted that public input has already been sought in December 2009 and March 2010 when the Land Development Agency (LDA) ran four public information sessions to inform the public of the early planning for both Wright and Coombs. Feedback from these sessions has informed the development of the EDP for Wright (which was subsequently approved as a DA in August 2010) and the development of the EDP for Coombs.

(3) The ACT agency comments received on the EDP DA will be available for inspection during business hours at Dame Pattie Menzies House, Dickson. These documents are an associated document of the public register which ACTPLA keeps as required under the Planning and Development Act 2007.
