Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2000 Week 7 Hansard (29 June) . . Page.. 2204..

MR SMYTH (continuing):

grant exemption to compliance with particular requirements where unnecessary delay or cost is evident and provided the integrity of the cadastre is not compromised. This change to the existing directions will help to streamline processes and increase flexibility and service.

The Bill provides for power of entry for the purposes of making a survey. If entry to an adjoining building is required for the purposes of the survey but is denied by the occupant, the surveyor may apply to a magistrate for an order. The Bill also provides for protection of survey marks.

This Bill provides the foundation for modern, efficient and effective survey practice in the ACT.

Debate (on motion by Mr Corbell ) adjourned.


MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services) (10.39): Mr Speaker, I present the Surveyors (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2000, together with its explanatory memorandum.

Title read by Clerk.

MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

I seek leave to have my presentation speech incorporated in Hansard.

The speech read as follows:

Mr Speaker, I now table the Surveyors (Consequential Amendments) Bill Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2000.

Further to the Surveyors Bill Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2000 which I have just tabled, this Bill repeals the Surveyors Act 1967 and the Surveyors (Examination and Registration) Regulations.

The Bill also makes consequential amendments to other legislation, for example the Building Act 19 72, by removing references to the Surveyors Act 1967 and omitting the term 'Chief Surveyor' and substituting 'Commissioner for Surveys'.

Together, this Bill and the Surveyors Bill 2000 enable the implementation of legislation that is efficient and streamlined.

Debate (on motion by Mr Corbell ) adjourned.
