Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 11 Hansard (21 October) . . Page.. 3859..


MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, the administrative arrangements orders have been prepared for the purpose of declaring the ACT Planning and Land Authority to be an administrative unit, and came into effect on 1 October 2003.

The declaration of the ACT Planning and Land Authority as an administrative unit allows for direct appropriations to the authority, commencing with the supplementary appropriation bill passed by the Assembly last month. It also provides for the transfer of planning and land management laws that were previously identified in the arrangements as the administrative responsibility of the Department of Urban Services to the Planning and Land Authority. This is another step in the government's commitment to the reform of planning and land management arrangements and for being responsive to the needs of the community.

Other changes have clarified the Chief Minister's portfolio water responsibility arrangements regarding sustainability. Three new laws have been added, namely the Civil Law (Sale of Residential Property) Act, the Tertiary Accreditation and Registration Act and the Vocational Education and Training Act. Two laws have been repealed: the Proceeds of Crime Act and the Land Acquisition (Northbourne Oval) Act 1996.
