Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 4 Hansard (12 April) . .
Public housing is not a permissible use under the zoning on the site. In 2012 Territory Plan Variation (TPV) 302 (which included public consultation as part of the process of the TPV), saw a further restriction added to the O'Malley Precinct Code which prohibits the development of residential aged care and supportive housing.
The site has been zoned for community uses for a number of years and given the growth in this area, it was considered appropriate timing to provide a community facility as planned. The site was identified for release in the 2017-18 to 2020-21 Indicative Land Release Program (published in June 2017).
The release is now on hold until further investigation.
Light rail—local employment
Ms Fitzharris (in reply to a question by Mr Wall on Thursday, 22 March 2018):
• The ACT Government is not privy to the length of time individual workers on the light rail project have lived in Canberra.
• The ACT Government does not have details of the exact employment arrangements between Canberra Metro and its employees with regard to whether there are fly-in, fly-out arrangements or not. However, it is highly likely that some employees commute from other major metropolitan centres.
• To date 78% of workforce during the construction phase is from Canberra and the surrounding region.
