results of that consideration when tabling the recommended final variation in the Assembly.

On further consultation, it was brought to the attention of the committee that references to accessible housing standards be changed. Mr Eric Martin of Eric Martin and Associates, who specialise in accessible architectural design, raised the issue. The committee took this under advisement and recommends that ACTPLA consider whether references to accessible housing standards should be replaced with accessible housing standards AS 1428. As with the first recommendation, the committee also requested that the Minister for Planning report to the Assembly on the results of this consideration when tabling the recommended final variation in the Assembly.

The final recommendation by the committee is that the word “objectives” in the proposed amendment to the territory plan for area A11 be replaced with the word “controls”. In doing this, the committee feels it would be then correctly referred to the current unnumbered controls in the territory plan part B1 rather than a single objective in the area of specific policy. As committee chair, I would like to thank those involved in the consultation process, particularly the committee office and secretary, Hanna Jaireth. Thank you.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
