Exercise of call-in powers-block 1, section 13, Gungahlin

MR CORBELL (Minister for Health and Minister for Planning): I present the following paper:

Land (Planning and Environment) Act, pursuant to section 229B (7)-Statement regarding exercise of call-in powers-Development application No 200309662-Block 1, section 13, Gungahlin, dated 1 April 2004.

I seek leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, on 30 January this year, I directed, under section 229A of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991, that the ACT Planning and Land Authority refer to me development application No 200309662. This notifiable instrument was notified on the ACT Legislation Register.

On 1 April 2004, I approved the application, using my powers under section 229B of the land act. The application sought an approval for the construction of a mixed-use building incorporating commercial, retail, including a Coles supermarket, and residential uses on block 1 section 13 Gungahlin.

In deciding the application, I gave careful consideration to the provision of ground-floor residential units fronting Gungahlin Place and East Street. I have imposed conditions on the approval that require a number of these units to be commercial while the rest are to be easily converted into a fully commercial unit. This proposal is consistent with the requirements of the territory plan. It will provide for activities at street frontage level which will contribute to community safety, vitality and social interaction and it will provide flexibility for change over time.
