Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 13 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 November 2015) . . Page.. 4040 ..
One way or another, it is a real worry that you have a minister with a very clear conflict with regard to the Labor clubs, and she had the cover of this committee to bring about some certainty and stability, and she squibs that opportunity. It is an insult to all involved in that committee and I hope that she has a good think about this response and comes into the Assembly at a later date with some revised responses to each of the recommendations.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Ms Burch presented the following paper:
Gaming Machine Act, pursuant to section 168—Community contributions made by Gaming Machine Licensees—Report by the ACT Gambling and Racing Commission—1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015, dated 20 October 2015.
Planning and Development Act 2007—variation No 343 to the territory plan
Papers and statement by minister
MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Planning, Minister for Roads and Parking, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations, Minister for Children and Young People and Minister for Ageing): For the information of members, I present the following papers:
Planning and Development Act, pursuant to subsection 79(1)—Approval of Variation No. 343 to the Territory Plan—Residential blocks surrendered under the loose fill asbestos insulation eradication scheme, dated 11 November 2015, together with background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any direction or report required.
Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee—Report 10—Draft Variation to the Territory Plan No. 343—Residential blocks surrendered under the loose fill asbestos insulation eradication scheme—Government response.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the papers.
MR GENTLEMAN: Variation 343 to the territory plan proposes to permit unit titled dual occupancy development on blocks within the residential RZ1 suburban zone. The variation will only apply to blocks that are 700 square metres or larger that have been surrendered under the loose-fill asbestos insulation scheme. The variation provides an opportunity to increase housing choice in established areas, and will also assist in recouping some of the government’s costs incurred by the asbestos eradication scheme.
