Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 5 Hansard (9 May) . . Page.. 1383..
MR CORBELL (continuing):
I have made the decision to approve the application to ensure that development can proceed without further delay. In particular, objections raised by competitors I have not considered to be valid as grounds for appeal. I do not consider that rivals to proponents making development applications should use the planning process to delay or stymie such applications.
The extension will be subject to a deed of agreement between the lessee and the territory to ensure that development occurs as required. The enhancement of the north-south pedestrian spine and additional signage consistent with the existing centre signage will considerably help to market the variety of businesses at the centre and direct shoppers to those businesses.
Mr Speaker, the land act specifies that if I decide an application I must table a statement in the Assembly within three sitting days of the decision.

Occupational Health and Safety Act, pursuant to section 228—Operation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1989 and its associated law—Third quarterly report for the period 1 January to 31 March 2006.
