Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 9 Hansard (11 August) . .

Page.. 2528..


It is open to the Assembly to "express their support for the completion, without further delay, of the full approved development of the shops currently under construction" as suggested in the petition. The timing however is subject to the decision of the Court of Appeal which is currently under consideration.

Limitations on third party appeal rights are already in place in the ACT, and would not have prevented a judicial review appeal of this matter in the ACT Supreme Court, the ACT Court of Appeal, or the High Court. Judicial review of matters before the High Court is simply beyond the statutory jurisdiction of the Assembly.

I appreciate and welcome Mr Coe's openness to resolve this matter by other legislative means. I will consider other available legislative avenues should this matter not be resolved through the upcoming decision of the Court of Appeal.
