Planning—strategy (Question No 1924)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 16 November 2011 (redirected to the Acting Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development):

(1) How many submissions have been received on the ACT's Draft Planning Strategy to date.

(2) How many individuals have attended public consultations to date and what has been the average age of these people.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The first four weeks of consultation on the draft ACT Planning Strategy (draft Strategy) coincided with consultation on the draft Transport for Canberra. The exhibition in the Assembly Exhibition Room displayed both draft policies. Many of the submissions on Transport for Canberra included comments about the draft Strategy. However, I am advised that in regard to solely the draft Strategy and up to the date of the Question on Notice:

(1) 45 submissions had been received.

(2) 40 people attended the launch of the draft Strategy and a further 82 recorded their attendance in the two weeks the exhibition was at the Assembly. Since then the exhibition has been on rotation in the town centre public libraries and numbers have not been captured. Presentations to industry and community groups have been held as well as three focus groups to canvas issues with vulnerable people, the elderly and indigenous peoples. The age of people attending falls into two cohorts, 20 to 30 years old and over 45 years old.
