MR SPEAKER: Mr Coe, I have just asked for order. You are now on a warning for interjecting.
MR BARR: Everyone in this city has a stake in the territory plan and the planning framework for this city. Everyone has a stake, and it is broader than just one group of people. It always is and always will be.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, a supplementary.
MR SESELJA: Minister, what are the arrangements for the proposed workshop and how will this approach facilitate the involvement of the community?
MR BARR: It will involve an opportunity for small group work for people to get down to the detail of the block and the different development options that may be available to discuss the opportunities for the renewal of the playground and also to address some of the concerns that people have raised in relation to transport connections, traffic and also open space provision within that part of Tuggeranong Valley.
MR SPEAKER: Ms Le Couteur, you will have the call but just before you ask your question, I would like to point out to members that we have staff from Parks and City Services in Territory and Municipal Services joining us in question time today. I welcome you to the Assembly.
Questions without notice
MS LE COUTEUR: My question is to the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development and concerns support for micro and medium scale generators of renewable energy. Minister, it is my understanding that the installation of residential solar PV has dropped rapidly as a result of the feed-in tariff closure last year, with 1,333 systems installed in September 2011 and only 129 systems installed in December 2011. Given this steady decline in installations, what is the government doing to ensure that micro and medium scale generators, that is installations of less than 200 kilowatts, are being assured of reasonable ongoing payments for the electricity they produce?
