Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 8 Hansard (16 August) . . Page.. 3233 ..
(2) The Minister for Planning and Land Management has agreed that Capital Recycling Solutions (CRS) is eligible for a direct sale of Block 11 Section 8 Fyshwick, however the proponent (CRS) is required to satisfy the terms of the Minister's agreement to the direct sale before a Crown lease can be issued.
(3) Block 11 Section 8 Fyshwick has been valued in accordance with standard operating procedures relating to the direct sale of land. In lieu of a competitive process three market valuations were originally undertaken in May 2017, and the highest valuation was adopted as the market value for the site. At that time the land was valued at $970,000 (ex GST). In May 2018, this valuation was updated and reconfirmed by the same valuation provider that supplied the adopted valuation.
(4) The price for the land has been agreed to be $970,000 (ex GST), less a contribution of $181,818 (ex GST), independently costed, for infrastructure works to be undertaken by CRS on behalf of the ACT Government.
(5) When a Crown lease is granted by way of direct sale the details of the sale are required to be tabled under section 242 of the Planning and Development Act 2007. This is undertaken on a quarterly basis.
(6) None, the direct sale is as a result in an application made by CRS under a former business name.
(7) Block 11 Section 8 Fyshwick is zoned IZ2: Industrial Mixed Use under the Territory Plan.
(8) Railway activities are not permitted within the zoning of Block 11 Section 8 Fyshwick; and no agreement has been made between CRS and the Government. However, it is understood that railway activities are permitted within the adjacent existing railway corridor, that being Block 11 Section 47 Fyshwick.
(9) Given that the land has been proposed to be sold as a contiguous parcel at the request of the proponent, the Government has not undertaken any studies to determine whether there is any requirement for remediation works on the site.
It is standard practice for the purchaser of a site to accept the land as it is at the time of sale and as such all costs associated with remediation works (if required) are the responsibility of the purchaser.
