Report on Draft Variation to the Territory Plan

MR LAMONT (8.34): I present report No. 13 of the Standing Committee on Planning, Development and Infrastructure on the draft variation to the Territory Plan - Kingston, section 26, blocks 32, 33, 50 and 54, the former Canberra Women's Bowling Club, together with a copy of the extracts of the minutes of proceedings of the committee. This report was provided to the Speaker for circulation on Monday, 17 May 1993, pursuant to the resolution of appointment. I move:

That the report be noted.

This is a quite straightforward proposition in relation to a variation of land use purposes for the area which generically is known as the former Canberra Women's Bowling Club. The committee was satisfied that the appropriate investigation had been undertaken by the ACT Planning Authority, that the appropriate requirements pursuant to the Land (Planning and Environment) Act had also been undertaken by the ACT Planning Authority and the proponents, and indicative design and siting proposals - I emphasise the words "indicative design and siting proposals" - were presented to the committee for discussion by the ACT Planning Authority on behalf of the proponents. The committee unanimously endorsed the variation, and I recommend this variation to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Madam Speaker, this motion will allow for the presentation of report No. 12, which is on the draft variations known as the draft Territory Plan, to the media prior to the formal tabling and presentation in this Assembly on Thursday. The reason the committee has suggested that we proceed in this manner is that, as you would appreciate, the report is extremely complex. To deal with the issues required to be dealt with and, as I said earlier on this day, to have a document
