Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (24 September) . .

Page.. 3511..

But one of the inclusions, just to satisfy those opposite, was that when we looked at the time line, which is in the public domain, one of the areas I insisted be included was to actually include the days as well as the dates so that people over there could understand that there was a weekend in between, so they could see that on the Thursday I got the delegate's advice and on the Friday we spoke to the directorate. I kept on saying, "As much information as possible has to go out." That information got released on Wednesday.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Hanson.

MR HANSON: Minister, why should the community have any confidence in a document handed out to the media which was edited by your office?

MS BURCH: They should have every confidence. You are putting an implication there; this is turning into a personal witch-hunt on something that got independently investigated. Findings were made. A delegate made a decision. The director-general put out as much information as possible for the community. This is what it is. What you are saying is simply wrong.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, did the investigator and delegate see a copy of the handout document before it was released?

MS BURCH: It was based on the findings. It was based on the findings of the independent investigator and the delegate. I certainly did not show it to them. It is in the public domain now, and not one person involved in this—not one person—is saying the findings in the public domain are any different from the findings in the delegate's decision.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, was the final version of the key findings handout document produced by your office?



MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Planning. Minister, the Gungahlin Community Council has listed the absence of a master plan as a major concern and one of the critical issues to be addressed in Gungahlin. In 2011, territory plan variation 300 made zoning changes to the territory plan and introduced a precinct code for the Gungahlin Town Centre. Minister, when will the government complete a master plan for the Gungahlin Town Centre?
