Energy—individual utility metering (Question No 652)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Planning and Land Management, upon notice, on 10 February 2016:

(1) Can the Minister explain the Government's policy on individual utility metering for units in unit title plans.

(2) How many new unit title plans did the Government's planning agency approve in (a) 2012-2013, (b) 2013-2014, (c) 2014-2015 and (d) 2015-2016 (to date).

(3) How many included proposals for individual utility metering for units in the plan for each year in part (2).

(4) How many proposals for individual utility metering were approved; if any were rejected, why.

(5) How many applications were made to the Government's planning agency for retro-fitting individual utility metering in units of established unit titles for each year in part (2).

(6) How many proposals for retro-fitting individual utility metering were approved; if any were rejected, why.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The ACT Government does not require utility metering of individual units in a units plan. Should a body corporate wish to have separately metered units, their representatives can approach Icon Water and ActewAGL.

(2) The number of units plans registered is as follows: 2012-2013: 95 2013-2014: 104 2014-2015: 83 2015-2016: 42 (to date)

(3) None. Approval of a units plan is not a development approval under the Planning and Development Act 2007. There are no provisions to condition an approval for subdivision under Unit Titles Act 2001. The provision of utility services is a matter between the developer and the service providers.

(4) None. See answer to Question (1) and (3) above.
