costs of a new interchange on Adelaide Avenue which would need to be funded through the capital works program.

(5) A concept plan and Precinct Code will likely be incorporated into the Territory Plan. These will include building height and density controls and will likely include minimum and maximum dwelling numbers. Any development on site cannot contradict the Territory Plan and hence agreed densities must be observed by any future developers. It is the LDA’s policy to include maximum and minimum numbers of dwellings or gross floor area in new leases.

(6) This will be largely dependent on the timing of any Territory Plan Variation and National Capital Plan Amendment process. This could take in the order of 12 to 24 months from the time the government makes a decision as to whether to support the proposal. Works could start earlier on the Brickworks and quarry park as the current zoning of this part of the site permits adaptive reuse.

(7) The Adaptation Option is estimated to take approximately five years from commencement of the project.

Planning—Marcus Clarke Street car park(Question No 1376)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 9 December 2010:

(1) What consultation took place with the community when the new car park at the southern end of Marcus Clarke Street was constructed.

(2) If there was limited or no consultation, why was more thorough consultation not undertaken.

(3) What are the long term plans for this car park and will it be returned to public open space.

(4) How many trees were cut down to make way for this car park.

(5) What arrangements have been made with the National Capital Authority over access to the carpark.

(6) Do the current arrangements for entering the car park pose any dangers to cyclists; if so, what measures are being undertaken to reduce these dangers.

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

The development referred to is located on Section 26 City. In terms of the National Capital Plan the subject land is identified as “designated area”. Where designated areas apply, the National Capital Planning Authority has the planning responsibility, including works approval. The question should therefore be directed to the National Capital Planning Authority.
