Paper and statement by minister

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Planning, Minister for Community Services, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations, Minister for Children and Young People and Minister for Ageing): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Planning and Development Act, pursuant to subsection 79(1)—Approval of Variation No. 325 to the Territory Plan—Woden Bus Layover—Part Block 13 and Block 14 Section 23 Phillip, dated 22 August 2014, together with background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any direction or report required.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: Variation 325 to the territory plan proposes to clarify the definition of "public transport facility" to include a bus layover, to rezone part of block 13, section 23 Phillip from Parks and Recreation—PRZ2—to Transport and Service—TSZ1—to allow the development of a bus layover, to rezone block 14, section 23 Phillip from commercial—CZ2—to Parks and Recreation—PRZ2—to enhance the viability of the Phillip Oval and to vary the public land overlay to reflect the previously mentioned zone changes. Variation 325 was released for public comment in April this year and it attracted one public submission. The main issue related to developing the layover at an alternative site in Phillip.

A report on consultation was prepared by the Environment and Planning Directorate, responding to the issues raised in the submission. Under section 73 of the Planning and Development Act, I have chosen to exercise my discretion to not refer the draft variation to the planning and environment committee, as I believe the public concerns have been adequately addressed.
