Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 6 Hansard (6 June) . . Page.. 1792..

MR CORBELL (continuing):

of high conservation areas on rural leases is already addressed through land management agreements. Again, this recommendation is outside the scope of the variation process.

The committee's final recommendation was that the shaping our territory working group assess the feasibility of incorporating key elements of the Southern Tablelands ecosystem park proposal in the Canberra international arboretum and gardens. Representatives of the Shaping Our Territory Implementation Group have since met with representatives of the Southern Tablelands ecosystem park initiative to explore the ecosystem park proposal and its suitability for the Canberra international arboretum and gardens site. Again, however, I should note that this approach and this issue are not within the scope of the variation process.

The recommended final variation was revised to permit the establishment of the new youth detention centre to the south-west of the suburb of Kenny. This has been achieved by revising the boundary between residential and broadacre land use policies. The proposal for a correctional facility triggered a mandatory preliminary assessment. The authority evaluated the PA and concluded that no further impact assessment is required. The PA will not be effective until the variation is finalised.

Mr Speaker, I commend the government's response to the committee's report.

Debate (on motion by Dr Foskey ) adjourned to the next sitting.
