Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 8 Hansard (6 August) . .
It was agreed to remove section 72 in the first place from the omnibus territory plan variation and deal with it separately. Now, as soon as that consultation has gone forward, the information from that is being dealt with and determined within the directorate. I can advise that it is not imminent.
The directorate have advised me that they intend to take the comments from north Canberra community residents on board. Indeed, they have changed many of the original components of the original variation to conform with some of the comments from the North Canberra Community Council. They will take those comments on board. They will then go back and, I believe it was either this week or next week, do another letterbox drop to residents around the area. From that, they will come forward with the variation.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, why was it implied to community representatives that the process was months away when the Canberra Times was told that the draft variation will be released soon.
MR GENTLEMAN: I saw the comments in the Canberra Times as well, and they contradict what was advised to me by the directorate. My understanding is that they have worked well with community residents, they have taken their comments on board and the variation is quite some time away.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, what communication have you had with the CFMEU or the Tradies about the proposal and the project?
MR GENTLEMAN: None at all.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, what consultation took place with the community prior to the territory plan variation being released?
MR GENTLEMAN: I understand that the Land Development Agency had consultations with the community prior to the preparation of the territory plan. I do not have the details of those consultations with me as it is not in my directorate, but I am happy to get those details and come back to the Assembly with them.
Children and young people—child and family centres
DR BOURKE: My question is to the Minister for Children and Young People. First, like Mr Doszpot, I welcome the visitors to the gallery this afternoon. Thank you for coming along, because you have certainly reduced the opposition's interjections this afternoon to what is, in my experience, an all-time low.
