In relation to commercial waste, can the Minister provide a copy of the Inovact Consulting Report 2010 into commercial sector recycling practices, as detailed on page 4 of the December 2011 Hyder report entitled Assessment of waste infrastructure and service options for the ACT.

Environment—community gardens (Question No 2092)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 23 February 2012:

(1) Given that in the Minister's response to the resolution of 9 March 2011 regarding community gardens he committed the Government to undertake a scoping study to investigate local food production in the ACT, what progress has the Government made with this study.

(2) When does the Government expect to release this study.

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

(1) I announced that the Government will undertake a scoping study to investigate local food production in the ACT as part of the Response to resolution of 9 March 2011 relating to community gardens, which I tabled in the Assembly on 28 June 2011; I also proposed to refer this matter to the Strategic Board for advice.

In response, the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate (ESDD) has allocated funding to develop a brief for a scoping study to investigate local food production. Given the complexity of issues around food production, ESDD is currently having discussions with key organisations to ascertain who has the appropriate research and technical capacity to undertake this work.
