Suburban Land Agency—rural subleases
Ms Berry (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Wall on Wednesday, 21 March 2018):
No, the Suburban Land Agency has not developed policies regarding the four specific subleases. The subleases have been granted and are being managed according to their terms.
In keeping with the Government's commitment to ensuring that the new land arrangements provide transparency and promote accountability, the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate is leading work to develop guidance on subleasing within the context of broader land transactions.
This guidance is being developed with a portfolio approach to foster consistency while addressing the requirements of the Directorate, City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Suburban Land Agency is responsible for the management of subleases already granted and is directly accountable to the Chair of the Board. I have communicated my expectations regarding accountability and transparency to the Chair of the Suburban Land Agency Board including through my statement of expectations.
The SLA have undertaken a detailed rolling program with Lessees and Licensees to ensure compliance with the land management requirements associated with these acquisitions. This includes administration, consulting and implementation of land management matters, bush fire management plans and grazing licenses. There are currently grazing licences that are in the early stages of renewal.
Ms Fitzharris (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Wall on Wednesday, 21 March 2018):
The plastics accepted at the Hume Materials Recovery Facility are sold on to Australian recycling markets. Two examples of these are the Visy Re+ Recycling Plant at Smithfield in Sydney and Australian Plastic Recyclers in Narrabri. The Visy plant recycles PET bottles and HDPE bottes into food grade pellets to be re-made into bottles. Australian Plastic Recyclers provides recovered HDPE to manufacturers to create products such as eco-friendly decking and garden architecture.
