Depending on the nature of a concessional lease a lessee may part-pay for some of the land upfront, over a period of time and/or may also choose to pay lump sum amounts over time. In the case of the Woden and Dickson Tradies, Block 28 Section 34 Dickson paid a combined total of $3,445,375.00 and Block 13 Section 3 Phillip paid a combined total of $511,000 before the leases were deconcessionalised.
Mr Gentleman (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Parton on Wednesday, 1 November 2017):
The development application for Block 28 Section 34 Dickson to remove the concessional status of the Crown lease was lodged on 19 April 2016. $554,625.00 was paid on 13 September 2016 which was the outstanding market value amount to be paid to remove the concessional status of the Crown lease. A market value lease, that had the concessional status removed, was registered at Land Titles on 24 February 2017.
No Waivers or Remissions were applied to the concessional Payout amount for Block 28 Section 34 Dickson. The amount was calculated using the legislated formula and was the remaining amount that was required to be paid for a full market value lease.
A development application for Block 13 Section 3 Phillip to remove the concessional status of the Crown lease was lodged on 7 June 2011. $1,271,288 was paid on 31 January 2016 which was the outstanding market value amount to be paid to remove the concessional status of the Crown lease. A market value lease, that had the concessional status removed, was registered at Land Titles on 12 May 2014.
Environment—Mugga, Isaacs and Tralee
Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Ms Lee on Tuesday, 28 November 2017):
I am unaware of any works currently being undertaken in the area the member cites as a wildlife corridor linking Mugga, Isaacs and Tralee.
The Suburban Land Agency is currently undertaking sub-division works in Section 22 Hume. The works are to service 20,000m2 of industrial land which was released to the market in June 2017.
The works commenced in November 2017 and are expected to run for twelve months. The works were subject to a development application which observed a public notification period from 9 March 2017 to 30 March 2017 and was approved on 24 May 2017. An Environmental Impact Statement was not required for these works.
The works are to the west of Tralee on the other side of the existing railway line. It should be noted, however, that these works do not impact on Tralee, and are well removed from Mugga and Isaacs.
