Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 6 Hansard (17 June) . . Page.. 1944..


Question resolved in the affirmative.

Planning and Environment-Standing Committee

Report No 16

MRS DUNNE (4.57): I present the following report:

Report No. 16-Draft Variation No 206 to the Territory Plan-Commercial B2C (Group Centres) Land Use Policies-Calwell Blocks 2, 5 and 6 Section 72 and Chisholm Block 7 Section 598, dated 9 May 2003, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

The report was circulated to members out of session. I move:

That the report be noted.

This draft variation arose as a result of the group centres variation 158, which was tabled in this place last year. In an attempt to amend parts of that variation on the floor, the minister, rather than amend it, made an undertaking that we would come into this place with a new variation, and this is the result of that.

The underlying motivation is to make available adaptable housing in response to the apparent shortage of such housing in South Tuggeranong. The housing would be designed in a manner whereby it can easily be modified at some future time, to meet the changing needs and capabilities of older persons and people with disabilities. I feel this is a bit of deja vu, Mr Deputy Speaker, because the minister has already presented the government response to that. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
