Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 5 Hansard (14 May) . . Page.. 1950..

MS DUNDAS (continuing):

I seek leave to move a motion authorising the report for publication.

Leave granted.

MS DUNDAS: I move:

That the report be authorised for publication.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

MS DUNDAS: I move:

That the report be noted.

This report considers draft variation No 223 which relates to the block 8 section 55 of Greenway, which is the Lakeside Leisure Centre; and the block 13 section 46 of Greenway, which is the enclosed sportsground in Tuggeranong, and the changing of their land use policies to include a public land overlay so they can be considered sport and recreation reserves. This draft variation arose from a request from the Conservator of Flora and Fauna when a draft plan of management for enclosed sportsgrounds and public pools was being considered. When that draft plan was being developed inconsistencies in the way the territory plan represented those public facilities were noted.

This draft variation sought to address those two concerns on two specific sites. The conservator also indicated that these variations would reflect the current usage of the sites, allow the plan of management to apply to these facilities and allow for the grounds to be managed and maintained by Canberra Urban Parks and Places, to an improved standard, in accordance with a statutory management plan. These are variations that the committee supports and we await with interest the draft plan of management being prepared by CUPP that would then be used on these sites. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Sitting suspended from 12.26 to 2.30 pm.
