(pp 53-55), the breakdown of how many dwellings will be released in the zonings RZ1-RZ5 for (a) 2024-25, (b) 2025-26 and (c) 2026-27 for the suburbs of
(i) Macnamara, (ii) Kenny, (iii) Molonglo, (iv) Molonglo Valley – new suburb,
(v) Weston and (vi) Ginninderry – new suburb.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The government has not committed to build 30, 000 homes in Canberra over the next five years (2023-2027). The government is planning for an increase of around 30,000 dwellings over the next five years, drawing from:

a. Land for 16,417 dwellings as identified in the ACT Government Indicative Land Release Program (2022-23 to 2026-27);

b. An estimated 7,900 dwellings from private development;

c. Land for an estimated 2,500 dwellings from Commonwealth partnerships;

d. 2,000 dwellings from Build-to-Rent products coming onto the market;

e. 600 dwellings from the Commonwealth social housing programs (representing 2 per cent of the 30,000 dwellings promised nationally by the Federal Government through the key worker housing and social housing programs); and

f. 200 dwellings as part of the Growth and Renewal Program (being the net increase outside of the Indicative Land Release Program).

(2) The number of houses built per year will be dependent on many factors including the timing of land released to market, Commonwealth Government Programs, private development, as well as construction/housing market conditions and wider economic circumstances.

(3) The land use zoning of dwellings built in ACT over the next five years will be guided by ACT’s planning, housing and land release policies aimed at providing a mix of housing types for ACT’s growing and changing population. The final mix of land use zoning and dwelling types will be influenced by ACT Government, private and Commonwealth land developments; planning and site suitability investigation processes; community and stakeholder consultation; and other economic factors to determine the appropriate land use zoning for each site to deliver optimal planning and sustainable development outcomes.

(4) The final breakdown of dwellings and their zoning for these suburbs will be determined at the Estate Development Plan (EDP) stage. Macnamara is the only one of the six suburbs listed that is currently subject to an EDP. The conditionally approved EDP for Macnamara would apply to the releases identified in early years of the ILRP, not those planned for 2024-25 and beyond.
