Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 2 Hansard (22 Feburary) . .
MISS C BURCH: Minister, was the ACT Ambulance Service consulted prior to approval of the DA? If so, what special conditions did they require to be applied to the supportive housing development?
MR GENTLEMAN: Yes, all ES agencies were talked to during the consultation period of the development application. The directorate talks to them on a regular basis about particular issues in relation to development applications, and planning for the future of Canberra.
MR HANSON: How do public liability, professional indemnity and property insurance costs and cover vary for a public housing site inside the bushfire prone area as compared to a public housing site outside of the bushfire prone area?
MR GENTLEMAN: PLI is not my responsibility, Madam Speaker.
MR MILLIGAN: My question is to Minister for Sports and Recreation. In December 2016 you promised a feasibility study for an indoor sports centre for Gungahlin and reported to this chamber, and I quote, "The feasibility study is being conducted." Then in February 2017 you reported that the feasibility study was happening very soon, and again I quote, "It's not going to happen next year; it is going to happen this year." Minister, given that we are now in 2018, when can the people of Gungahlin, Belconnen and Woden expect work on this project to begin?
MS BERRY: I can give some information on the feasibility study. The consultants have been engaged and conversations have occurred recently with community councils in Gungahlin and Woden. I am not sure about Belconnen, but I know those two were consulted and were part of the conversation as well as some of the sporting communities across the ACT.
The answer to the question: when will the feasibility study be released—I do not think that is what he asked—is that it will be very soon.
MR MILLIGAN: Minister, why has it taken so long to conduct this feasibility study?
MS BERRY: To make sure that it was comprehensive.
MR COE: When can the people of Gungahlin expect that an indoor sports centre is going to be built given you have done this year-long comprehensive study?
MS BERRY: The study will be released. It included Gungahlin but was not just Gungahlin.
MS CHEYNE: My question is to the Attorney-General. Can the minister please update the Assembly on the government's work to make Canberra a restorative city?
