Development—Lanyon Valley(Question No 404)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 22 June 2005:

In relation to plans for the Lanyon Valley region, the Lanyon shopping centre and surrounds, when will a master plan for the Lanyon Valley region be developed;

If a master plan is not planned for the near future, why not;

How can residents of the Lanyon Valley region provide input to the Government into future plans for this region;

Will the Government be releasing vacant land around the Lanyon Valley shopping centre for development; if so, when and for what purpose; if not, why not;

What future public or community infrastructure is planned for development at the Lanyon Valley shopping centre and the surrounding areas.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The planning for the Lanyon Valley and the shopping Centre was undertaken and completed in 1989.

The planning for this area is incorporated into the Territory Plan and is still relevant and sufficient to guide continued development. No new master plan is required.

The Government is not intending to review the planning in this area in the foreseeable future. Residents of the Lanyon region have the opportunity to provide input into the manner in which the region is developed by raising issues through the Tuggeranong Community Council, by commenting on individual development applications and, of course, through public consultation on broader strategic initiatives that affect Canberra.

The remaining vacant land around the Lanyon Valley shops is reserved for further commercial and community use. This land will be developed for these purposes as the demand for these services is warranted.

The ACT Planning and Land Authority and the Land Development Agency are considering an application for a direct grant of land for a new supermarket in the shopping centre. Additional community services will be considered, in accordance with the relevant land use policies as the demand arises.
