Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 7 Hansard (26 June) . . Page.. 2687..

(2) Can a copy be provided to interested parties, including myself?

(3) Why were these guidelines imposed upon the St Anne's Convent development in Campbell before they were finalised and approved?

Mr Corbell

: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) The Supportive Housing Guidelines are being developed by ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) and will be available shortly. It is intended that they be released initially as an interim guideline and made available for comment by interested parties. It is anticipated that they will then be formally adopted as a planning guideline under the Territory Plan.

(2) Interim Guidelines are listed on ACTPLA's website and available to the public. Members of the Assembly or public can also request a hard-copy version to be forwarded to them. Comments on listed interim guidelines may be made to ACTPLA.

(3) The Guidelines are designed to assist proponents and planners in the interpretation of the Community Facility Land Use Policy as it relates to Supportive Housing. Any proposed use of land with a Community Facility land use policy is only permitted where it meets the restrictions on the use of land contained in the Territory Plan. The proponents of the St Anne Convent site required assistance in interpreting the controls related to Supportive Housing.

Residential aged care facilities

(Question No 733)

Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice:

In relation to the provision of residential aged care facilities or aged care units, what are the proposals for new or extension of existing such services including block and section and estimated number of people to be accommodated in:

(1) Woden Valley;

(2) Weston Creek;

(3) Tuggeranong;

(4) Belconnen; and

(5) Gungahlin.

Mr Corbell

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

I have been advised by the Land Development Agency and the ACT Planning and Land Authority that a range of proposals are being considered for new or extensions to existing residential aged care facilities or aged care units.

Details of the proposals are attached.

In some instances, the land use policy for the sites under consideration would require a variation to the Territory Plan. Some proposals are at a formative stage and the numbers are unknown, or may change over time or may not proceed.
