Mr Corbell

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The 2001 Master Plan for the Queensland Investment Corporation's (QIC) development on section 84 (formerly sections 56 and 35), the Bunda Street carpark and Griffin Centre, is the current approved master plan. However, this master plan has been revised and is currently the subject of a Preliminary Assessment.

(2) The Preliminary Assessment is available for public inspection at Government libraries, the ACT Planning and Land Authority and is also available through the ACT Planning and Land Authority's website.

(3) The original 2001 Master Plan was subject to the Government's usual process of adopting master plans at that time. In preparing and finalising the Master Plan it was subject to community and ACT Government consultation. It was also annexured to a Preliminary Assessment that was subsequently endorsed by the Planning agency (then Planning and Land Management) in July 2001. A variation to the Territory Plan was also undertaken to give effect to the Master Plan. Consequent to this, a Deed of Agreement was offered to the proponent in September 2001. Variation 200 introduced a new process for preparing and adopting Master Plans, including a 21 day public notification period.

(4) The Deed of Agreement binds QIC to the delivery of what is in the Master Plan. However, the Master Plan can be amended with the agreement of the parties to the Deed.

(5) QIC has proposed variations to the 2001 Master Plan. These variations are subject to a Preliminary Assessment as has been previously outlined. This Preliminary Assessment has been publicly notified. The documentation identifies the departures from the current master plan.
