Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 8 Hansard (10 August) . .
There are choices to be made. Let me tell you that when I was down at the Canberra Hospital this morning many people made it very clear to me that if the choice is between a tram and rebuilding the Canberra Hospital—and that seems to be the choice that this government has made—they think that a tram is the wrong choice. They want a hospital that is expanded, that is world class, and not the tram. We will not be supporting the amendment.
That Ms Fitzharris's amendment be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 7: Mr Barr Ms Berry Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Mr Rattenbury
Noes 6: Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Ms Lawder Mr Wall
Question so resolved in the affirmative
Motion, as amended, agreed to.
Glebe Park land acquisition
MR COE (Ginninderra) (11.18): I move:
That this Assembly:
(a) regarding a block of land adjacent to Glebe Park (City Block 24, Section 65), that:
(i) in response to a question by then MLA, Ms Le Couteur, on 22 June 2011, the then Minister for Planning, Mr Corbell, said "It is not permitted to be used for residential development. The government does not support its use for residential development. The government will not consider any change to the Territory Plan that permits residential development or indeed any other development beyond that which has already been granted under the lease ... The lease sets out very clearly what can and cannot occur on that land. The fact is that, in relation to this particular site, there are very limited uses available for the leaseholder. They were aware of that when they purchased the lease, and they now have obligations under that lease to maintain the land in such a way, including in relation to its landscape, so it can continue to be enjoyed by those who also enjoy the formal designated Glebe Park area";
