Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 8 Hansard (19 August) . . Page.. 2830..


MR CORBELL (continuing):

design principles, or CPTED, and approved by the manager, Canberra Urban Parks and Places, Department of Urban Services.

It requires the plan to include the design and location of the proposed footpath, to be adjacent to the southern and western boundaries of block 16 where practicable, lighting, playground equipment, seating, other facilities and landscaping, including the location and species of proposed plants particularly adjacent to block 16. The plan shall take into account a crime prevention through environmental design analysis prepared by Sarkissian and Siviaciyan, the ACT crime prevention and urban design resource manual 2000, the Canberra landscape guidelines and current relevant Australian standards including a standard for playgrounds.

It states that the Deakin Residents Association shall be invited to comment on the plan. The AAT decision also recommends the desirability of ensuring that oversight of the park is considered by planning authorities if and when approval is sought for residential development on block 15. The issue of safety is an important one. This government, which has given attention to the AAT's decision, agrees that the development of the parkland should be undertaken in accordance with the committee's recommendations. I commend the variation to the Assembly.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: Each quarter I table in the Assembly the schedule of leases granted for the period 1 April to 30 June 2003. Section 216A of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 specifies that a statement be tabled in the Legislative Assembly outlining details of leases granted by direct grant, leases granted to community organisations, leases granted for less than market value and leases granted over public land. However, during this period no leases have been granted. I have also tabled two other schedules relating to variations approved and change of use charge collected for the same period.
