Answers to questions

Planning—lease variations (Question No 684)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Urban Renewal, upon notice, on 9 March 2016 (redirected to the Minister for Planning and Land Management):

For each year since 2012 2013, broken down by (a) month and (b) suburb, (i) how many Development Applications were lodged for lease variations and (ii) what was the total amount paid in lease variation charges.

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

The requested information is provided at Attachment 1 and Attachment 2.

The amount of Lease Variation Charge paid per month is unrelated to development applications lodged during that month.

Development applications lodged but withdrawn prior to approval are omitted.

Where a development application was lodged but subsequently refused, this has been noted.

The attachments have been compiled from several data sources.

(Copies of the attachments are available at the Chamber Support Office).

Planning—secure mental health unit (Question No 707)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 6 April 2016 (redirected to the Minister for Urban Renewal):

Further to the answer to Question No 623 which stated that the Justice and Community Safety Directorate previously had ownership of the parcel of land on which the Secure Mental Health Unit (SMHU) is being built, and the direct land transfer was approved by the Minister for Environment on 10 December 2013, (a) what criteria must be met in order for a direct land transfer to take place, (b) what is the process or policy surrounding ACT Government direct land transfers, (c) what is the definition of the term, "direct land transfer", (d) does a direct land transfer also include the transfer of the name on the title deed and (e) what other changes occur as a result of such a transfer.

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

The term "direct land transfer" is not used in ACT statute.

All Executive leases are granted in the name of the Australian Capital Territory with the registered address being care of the relevant directorate. In the case of the SMHU the Health Directorate is the nominated directorate.
