In the Belconnen town centre, a place design brief shaped the tender process for releasing multiple sites. When that package is released through tender, Belconnen residents can be confident that it will deliver on their expectations.

The creation of a place design concept for the Gungahlin town centre is currently underway. A standing community panel has been established and will inform both Planning and SLA work to deliver land releases that meet the needs of the Gungahlin residents. This detailed design and consultation work gives the government an opportunity to showcase everything that we can deliver through our land development program.

When it comes to land, it is not all about profit. It is about building stronger communities—building suburbs where people want to live. We will keep working with all the tools that we have available to deliver fantastic neighbourhoods that meet Canberrans’ needs and give them the amenity and the life experiences that they need.

Mr Barr: Further questions can be placed on the notice paper. Thank you.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Lake Tuggeranong—recreational fishing

MR STEEL: Earlier in question time Mr Davis asked me about whether the government was aware of any issues around the Soward Way overpass over Lake Tuggeranong. I have been informed that there are two related issues that have been raised with the government. One is in relation to illegal parking by fishers around the lake foreshore, where non-permitted vehicle access has been found. A non-permitted access point to the lake foreshore near Soward Way has also been found near a construction site. I am informed that TCCS will be installing physical barriers to deter access at that location.

Dhulwa Mental Health Unit—safety

MR GENTLEMAN: Further to my answer to Ms Castley in question time, and for clarity, I have met with the ANMF and their members. I do engage with all unions to ensure that I hear from them and their members.
