Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 8 Hansard (14 August) . . Page.. 2865 ..
A large proportion of the recommendations that were noted related to planning processes and matters that, while not specifically relevant to variation 344, will prove valuable in considering future Territory Plan variations. A number of the agreed recommendations have resulted in changes to the variation, including rezoning a pocket park within the centre to urban open space and prohibiting a number of health, religious and residential uses for the newly zoned community facility land in Arabanoo Park.
The single recommendation not agreed to was to cancel the community facility rezoning within Arabanoo Park, as this was a recommendation of the Woden town centre master plan. The rezoning from urban open space to community facility land will provide additional community land collocated with other existing community facilities and close to the main Woden public transport hub.
A further amendment was made to the restriction on building size introduced in the recommended version of DV 344. This restriction on floor plate size for the market buildings east of Callum Street was introduced to control the bulk and scale of taller buildings but was found to be overly restrictive and would make development unviable. I directed the planning authority to rectify this to ensure that appropriate levels of development could be undertaken in accordance with the recommendations of the Woden town centre master plan while considering that development would not significantly impact on the amenity of the surrounding area.
I directed the planning authority to make the necessary changes to variation 344, which I have now approved. I am pleased to table that variation and the government responses to the standing committee report into DV 344.
