Sustainability of the ACT—Government strategies, policies and legislative reforms—Timelines for the delivery of sustainability policies, dated June 2011.
Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee
Report 9—government response
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and Minister for Police and Emergency Services): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee—Report 9—Inquiry into RZ3 and RZ4 Residential Redevelopment Policies—Inner North Canberra—Government response.
That the Assembly takes note of the paper.
On 25 June 2009 the Assembly resolved that the Standing Committee on Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services be invited to undertake an inquiry into the RZ3 and RZ4 residential redevelopment policies applying in north Canberra.
The committee held a public meeting in August last year and heard from the Minister for Planning as well as a variety of government officers, community representatives, resident groups, industry practitioners and peak industry bodies. The standing committee tabled its findings in the Assembly on 17 February this year.
The report made 15 recommendations in total. These recommendations broadly reflect the input the government tendered to the inquiry, specifically the lifting of certain infill development moratoriums that currently apply to Turner as well as areas north of Macarthur and Wakefield avenues. The government supports all the committee’s recommendations in substance, with implementation having already progressed, or being about to progress, on a number of them.
I refer members to the government response and commend the response to members.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Mr Corbell presented the following papers:
