Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2004 Week 3 Hansard (11 March) . . Page.. 1082..

Mrs Dunne: Thank you, Mr Speaker.

Mr Stanhope

: Mr Speaker, I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answer to question without notice

Private developments-traffic arrangements


: Mr Speaker, in question time yesterday Ms Tucker asked me a question about the importance placed on advice regarding roads and traffic from City Management when development decisions are made. In response to Ms Tucker's question, I can advise her and the Assembly that advice from City Management is never ignored by the ACT Planning and Land Authority.

The Territory Plan specifies in part A3 that any comments of a body to which the application has been referred for comment should be carefully considered. To this end, advice from City Management, when provided, is always considered in the development application assessment process.

However, as Ms Tucker and other members would be aware, ACPTLA receives considerable advice from agencies, and from time to time that advice must be balanced against other considerations to make an appropriate decision on a development application to ensure the best outcome for the community.
