Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 12 Hansard (Thursday, 20 October 2005) . . Page.. 4006 ..


As the Authority has not ignored or rejected the advice of ACT Roads there are no sites in respect to this question.


Roads—development advice(Question No 490)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 18 August 2005:

On how many occasions in the last 12 months has the advice of ACT Roads been ignored or rejected by ACTPLA when approving developments;

Where are the sites where such advice has been ignored and rejected and on what grounds was it ignored or rejected.

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

None. The ACT Planning and Land Authority is required to consider all advice received from Government agencies. It does so having regard to a range of planning issues, which might make incorporating that advice into a development approval either impractical or undesirable.

As the Authority has not ignored or rejected the advice of ACT Roads there are no sites in respect to this question.


Capital works(Question No 507)

Mr Smyth asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 23 August 2005:

Why are there no completion dates listed for projects in the 2004-05 March Quarter Capital Works progress report;

Is this a permanent exclusion or will completion dates be included in progress reports in the future;

If it is a permanent exclusion, why have you chosen to deliberately delete completion dates from these reports.

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

Proposed completion dates were not provided in Attachment A to the 2004-05 March Capital Works Program Progress Report, as the information provided by several agencies was incomplete or inaccurate. Had this information been included it may have been misleading.

Estimated completion dates will be included in the 2004-05 June Capital Works Progress Report.

Refer to the responses to Questions 1 and 2.
