(3) What future plans, if any, exists for the complex.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The former food hall is part of a larger block containing parkland at the rear of the disused food court and adjacent to Glebe Park. The current owner has been negotiating with Planning and Land Management (PALM) for some time to redevelop that site. PALM refused to approve a recent Development Application (DA) to demolish the site because there is neither an acceptable proposal to redevelop the area or an acceptable management plan for the land in the meantime. The lessee has sought a review of this refusal in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)

(2) The Amalgamated Property Group is the current owner of the land where the former Glebe Park Food hall and adjacent parkland is located.

(3) Please refer to (1) above.
