Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 7 Hansard (25 June) . . Page.. 2478..

MR CORBELL: On 10 April last year, the Assembly passed a motion requesting that I immediately commence a draft variation over block 3 section 129 Narrabundah, in accordance with section 37 of the Land Planning and Environment Act 1991. In response, on 7 May last year, I directed Planning and Land Management to undertake a planning review for the entire section 129 Narrabundah, and the surrounding land, subject to an "x"overlay on the Territory Plan.

I am pleased to announce that the planning review has been completed, and that the findings of the review and the recommendations of PALM and Land Group have now been fully considered. The review undertook an assessment of the opportunities and constraints associated with the site-for example a one in 100-year flood level, sewer location, light spill from the adjacent golf course and Actew substation requirements. The review has established that the most suitable land use for the major part of the site would be some form of agricultural or horticultural use, with a broadacre land use policy under the Territory Plan.

Having established a land-use policy, the government is now progressing a preliminary assessment and draft variation to the Territory Plan to remove the 'x' overlay and vary the land-use policy to broadacre for the area outside the one in 100-year flood level. This process typically takes approximately nine months. Following the outcomes of the variation process, it is the government's intention to release the parcel of land through an open and competitive process. This is consistent with government policy and the approach taken in similar situations.
