Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 2 Hansard (23 February) . . Page.. 757..
MR SESELJA: Minister, how much has the government's interference in the planning process at Giralang contributed to the delays in the construction of the new Giralang shops?
MR CORBELL: It has not. In fact, if anything, it has helped bring the matter to a point closer to conclusion. Of course, the contrary position which seems to be advocated by Mr Seselja is that the approval or refusal should have been made by the planning authority. Of course, what he fails to note in his implied critique is that that would have led inevitably to action on a merits review in the ACAT.
MR HANSON: My question is to the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and is about stormwater drains.
Ms Gallagher: Ah!
MR HANSON: Are you sneering about something?
MR SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, your question, thank you.
MR HANSON: Minister, residents along Cordeaux Street in Duffy have raised concerns about flooding in their neighbourhood. According to the affected residents, the government has conducted investigations into stormwater infrastructure in their street. They note that consultations have occurred. Minister, what were the results of the investigations and has any further work been conducted on Cordeaux Street?
MS GALLAGHER: I understand a report has been completed into the stormwater system in Duffy and that is being used to inform budget deliberations around resourcing required.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, a supplementary?
MR HANSON: Yes, Mr Speaker. What work will be done and when will it be completed?
MS GALLAGHER: It is currently before budget cabinet, Mr Speaker.
MR COE: Supplementary, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mr Coe.
MR COE: What work is being done on Nudurr Drive, between Palmerston and Crace, on improvements to the stormwater network following representations that I have made?
MS GALLAGHER: I am sorry to tell Mr Coe that I am not aware of that. I will follow it up for him.
