Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 3 Hansard (10 April) . . Page.. 959..


MADAM SPEAKER: Yes.

MR CORBELL: No; it does not transfer to the drinking water supply.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Again to either minister: how much water has flowed over the Googong spillway in the last week or so?

MR CORBELL: I would need to seek advice from ACTEW as to the volume of water over that period.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, which dam is the ACT water supply currently being drawn from?

MR CORBELL: That is an operational matter for ACTEW and I would need to seek advice from ACTEW as to what their current configuration of water supply arrangements is. As members would be aware, ACTEW is able to draw water from either the Googong or from the Cotter catchments, depending on their operational requirements.

Planning—fees

MR COE: My question is for the Treasurer. Recently the Chief Minister said in a statement that the ACT government will be simplifying and significantly reducing extension of time charges. In addition to that, in 2012 the Treasurer announced that the government will waive commence and complete fees for commercial, mixed-use and multi-unit residential developments.

Treasurer, given the most significant EOT fees are for leaseholders who have had land for several years, what benefits from the stimulus package are there for leaseholders who purchased land prior to 1 July 2012?

MR BARR: I thank Mr Coe for the question. Depending, of course, on when the land was purchased, there are a number of benefits available, most particularly reductions in the multiples of fees that are associated with multiple years of non-delivery of the associated construction. There was also a two-year moratorium on EOT fees during the global financial crisis that also significantly reduced fees for those who purchased blocks just prior to the global financial crisis. For those who purchased even earlier and whose land purchases may go back towards the start of this particular century, those owners would have benefited from a number of years of moratorium together with a number of years of waiver as a result of recent announcements.

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Coe, a supplementary question.

MR COE: Minister, specifically what benefits from the stimulus package will be received by leaseholders who purchased land between 2008 and 2012?
