MR DOSZPOT: Minister, will the standard 21.5-metre high limit of RZ5 be maintained on the Red Hill site and will your government's standard solar access rules be a planning requirement for Red Hill?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Doszpot for his question, particularly in regard to solar access. As I have said in this place before, we are looking at different ways of looking at solar access for the territory. I have given the directorate some instruction on going out to the public on how we should look at solar access for the territory; where are the appropriate opportunities for solar access? I look forward to the community consultation on that.

Mr Doszpot: Point of order, Madam Speaker.

MADAM SPEAKER: You have a point of order?

Mr Doszpot: The first part of the question was: Minister, will the standard 21.5-metre high limit of RZ5 be maintained on the site? The minister has not answered any part of that part of the question.

MADAM SPEAKER: I think that the minister has sat down and he does not intend to answer that part of the question. Is there a supplementary question?

Mr Coe: There is, Madam Speaker.

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, will the standard 21.5 metre height limit for RZ5 be maintained on the site? If you do not know it, feel free to tell us that you do not know it. Also, how many other suburbs have RZ5 developments that are located away from group or town centres?

MR GENTLEMAN: I will be looking at that development when it comes before my desk. At this stage I have not had detailed investigation of the height in regard to RZ5. I will certainly have a look at it. I will certainly have a look at those heights in other areas as well.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, what is your proposed time line for the relocation of tenants, demolition, construction and also with regard to when the variation will be finalised?

MR GENTLEMAN: That is a question for the task force. It does not fall under my portfolio.

Housing—homelessness

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Minister for Housing, Community Services and Social Inclusion. Minister, the chapters of the 2016 report on government services
