Planning and Land Act, pursuant to section 48 - Direction given to the Executive of the Land Development Agency, dated 8 December 2003.
I ask for leave to make a statement.
MR QUINLAN: I present this direction to the Land Development Agency under section 48 of the Planning and Land Act 2002. As you are aware, Mr Speaker, the Land Development Agency was created to provide a planning and land system that contributes to the orderly and sustainable development of the ACT in accordance with sound financial principles. The agency was budgeted to pay a dividend to the territory in the order of $131 million for the 2003-04 financial year. I am pleased to report that the operations of the Land Development Agency have continued to flourish.
The quantum of this interim dividend has been agreed between Treasury and the Land Development Agency and has been calculated with due regard to the continuing operations of the agency. Under the terms of the legislation, a copy of this direction must be laid before the Assembly within six days of it having been given. I commend this instrument to the Assembly.
