Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (22 September) . .

Page.. 3317..


MR COE: Minister, did the $381 million figure include all 62 public housing properties being redeveloped?

MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Coe to my earlier answer. The land use development benefits that accrue from light rail accrue across the corridor as a whole and not in relation solely to ACT Housing properties. They accrue across the corridor as a whole.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, why was the completion of the full business case not delayed until a proper heritage assessment could be completed? Is it not customary for heritage assessments to be completed before infrastructure projects are allowed to proceed?

MR CORBELL: The development of capital metro is not contingent on the resolution of heritage matters in relation to this limited number of sites. For the balance of Ms Lawder's question, I would refer her to my earlier answers.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, what portion of government held land in the corridor will be preserved as a result of the decision?

MR CORBELL: That will depend on the specific development applications that are made, the assessment of the Planning and Land Authority in relation to yields on those sites and the relevant application of the heritage listing and subsequent approved-built outcome.

Williamsdale solar farm—proposed

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Minister for the Environment. Minister, why has the government decided that an environmental impact statement for the proposed solar farm at Williamsdale is not necessary?

MR CORBELL: Responsibility for environmental impact statements rests with the Minister for Planning.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, why is the government ignoring reports of asbestos dumps in the Williamsdale area?

MR CORBELL: I refer Ms Lawder to my previous answer.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: I am not sure whether the Minister for Planning or the Minister for the Environment wants to answer this question but, whichever minister, why is the government not studying the impact of the removal of between 100 and 200 mature yellow box gum trees?
