Planning and Development Act 2007—variation No 356 to the Territory Plan

Paper and statement by minister

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Minister for Planning and Land Management, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister assisting the Chief Minister on Advanced Technology and Space Industries) (3.26): For the information of members I present the following paper:

Planning and Development Act, pursuant to subsection 79(1)—Approval of Variation No 356 to the Territory Plan—Amendments to the West Belconnen Concept Plan for Ginninderry Stage 1 Development, dated 18 September 2018, including associated documents.

In accordance with the provisions of the act, this variation is presented with the background papers and copies of the summaries and reports. I ask leave to make a short statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: The variation proposes to vary the west Belconnen concept plan by making the provision of gas utility services to blocks in stage 1 of the Ginninderry estate, west Belconnen, an option rather than a mandatory requirement.

DV 356 was released for public comment between 4 May 2018 and 22 June this year. One written submission was received which supported the variation and suggested removing the default provision which mandates gas. A report on consultation was prepared in response to the issue raised in the submission. Given the support received in the submission, no changes were made to DV 356.

Under section 73 of the Planning and Development Act 2007, I referred the draft variation to the Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal. The committee advised that they did not intend to conduct an inquiry and I subsequently approved the variation.
