Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 8 Hansard (14 August) . .
It provides for clear and transparent decision-making processes and meets our commitments under the parliamentary agreement. This, supported by escalation provisions that will be incorporated into an approval bilateral agreement, will ensure ongoing protection for matters of national environmental significance.
As always, I encourage members of the community to consider and provide comment on the bill and changes proposed. I believe it delivers a more efficient assessment and approval process, balanced carefully with the ongoing need to minimise the environmental impact for developments. I thank Minister Corbell and directorate staff for their assistance on this bill. I commend the bill to the Assembly.
Debate (on motion by Mr Coe) adjourned to the next sitting.
