Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 8 Hansard (25 June) . . Page.. 2215..


MR CORBELL (continuing):

As a general principle, land will continue to be released through open and competitive processes. Open and restricted auctions will be used, although tenders and direct sales may be considered for significant developments, to encourage investment in the territory, or to achieve specific business or community outcomes.

The government will commence land servicing in 2003-04, phasing-in over a period of three years. This will provide access to serviced land by individual buyers and smaller builders. Market conditions and market demand for additional land will determine the timing and number of releases. Releases will be made in close consultation with peak bodies, industry groups, and across government.

The document tabled today will be circulated to all community councils, LAPACs, and neighbourhood planning groups. It will also be available to the wider community through the government's website.
