Page 4 of the ILRP also identifies the investment to achieve land release and the inherent risks associated with delivering land, most of which are often outside of the government’s control. This includes issues that arise relating to contaminated land, sites that are culturally or ecologically valuable, as well as delays in completing necessary site investigations, due diligence activities due to climate change impacts over the last few years, and the availability of special consultants, particularly within the COVID environment.

Will the SLA hit its land release targets for single blocks this year? The target land release for multi-unit dwellings in last year’s ILRP was 4,106 dwellings. However, the SLA annual report does not provide for the multi-unit dwellings for the financial year, which was the question—how much land was released? This is available in the SLA’s annual report. I have all of those pages which reference all the details that the Canberra Liberals asked me questions about yesterday to table for their information. I present the following paper:

Fadden—Healthy Waterways project

MR RATTENBURY: During question time earlier today, Ms Lawder asked me about the rain garden in Fadden and how many letters were distributed to constituents in the area. The answer is that 100 pamphlets were distributed to 100 households. I have a map, which I am going to table, that Ms Lawder can have a look at. It indicates the areas highlighted where deliveries were made.

My computer has just taken a moment. I was asked what community education components are included in stage 2 of the Healthy Waterways program. The answer is that the communications plan for stage 2 is currently being developed. A variety of engagement and information opportunities will occur as part of stage 2, and they will likely include face-to-face information sessions, web content, printer collateral, direct mail and communications, social media engagement and possible digital assets. I present the following paper:

Letters distribution areas—Map—Answer to question taken on notice from Ms Lawder.


MS CHEYNE: I have the answer that I said I would give tomorrow. I have it now to hand. For non-employing businesses that had their business support grant applications approved, for all businesses it was 11,177, and for non-employing businesses it was 4,025. I also note that a proportion of those businesses received extension payments. I note that there were further payments made under what we termed TAP AF—the acronym of which—
