Planning and Urban Renewal—Standing Committee—Report 4—Draft Variation to the Territory Plan No 329: Weston Group Centre and Surrounding Community and Leisure and Accommodation Lands: Zone changes and amendments to the Weston Precinct map and code, dated 7 February 2018, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.
That the report be noted.
This is the fourth report of the planning and urban renewal committee for the Ninth Assembly. On 28 August 2017, pursuant to section 73 of the Planning and Development Act 2007, the minister for planning referred this variation to the standing committee. The standing committee advised the minister that we would be conducting an inquiry into it. The committee held one public meeting and heard from eight witnesses, who included members of community organisations, individuals, the Minister for Planning and Land Management and his officials. We also received three submissions. Our report contains 11 recommendations. The bottom line is that the committee recommended that, subject to our following recommendations, draft variation 329 be approved.
When you look at our recommendations, those of you who followed intimately my comments and my recommendations on Woden a week ago, as I am sure all of you did, will find that there are a lot of recommendations in common. Recommendations 2,
