Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella) (10.02): Pursuant to standing order 250B, I present the following paper:

Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee—Inquiry into the Planning and Development (Project Facilitation) Amendment Bill 2014—Statement, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I seek leave to move a motion.

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the papers.

The committee acknowledged that we had a very short time frame available for interested stakeholders to prepare submissions, particularly as the submission period coincided with school holidays and the Easter period. In light of the short time frame the committee sought to expedite the inquiry process by adopting processes used by the Senate committees when conducting legislation inquiries in short time frames.

The committee took evidence from a number of individuals and community organisations, including a number of community councils and other organisations, including the ACT Heritage Council, the Walter Burley Griffin Society, the Planning Institute of Australia and the Australian Institute of Architects.

I would like to express my thanks for the contributions made by submissions and by witnesses who participated in the public hearings. I would also like to thank the staff
