I am advised that this estimate is provided as an average over time as it is likely that more intensive work will be required at the initial stages of the work of the Committee and is dependent on actual hours worked.

In addition, travel- expenses are provided for consistent with the Justice and Community Safety Travel and Related Services Guidelines.

I am further advised that these terms are commensurate with comparable roles.

Reviewing reports and associated documentation;

Obtaining and providing briefings in preparation for the Committee meeting;

Visiting relevant sites (and interacting with staff); and

Chairing the inaugural Committee meeting on 24 March 2021.

As at 31 March 2021, Ms Nixon has not yet been paid.


Mr Steel (in reply to a question by Ms Lawder on Wednesday, 31 March 2021):

Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) has responded to complaints from residents which related to illegal parking by construction workers and non-compliance with temporary traffic management plans.

Parking enforcement and temporary traffic management compliance inspections are ongoing, and construction workers have been instructed to use nearby all-day paid parking areas to help free up short-term parking spaces near the development.

Some temporary disruption is unavoidable for developments of this scale. However, TCCS will continue to work closely with Access Canberra, WorkSafe and the developer to minimise inconvenience and to ensure safety.

Regarding traffic and parking planning, a Transport Impact Assessment (TIA) was required to support the development application for this site. TIA involves compiling and analysing information on the impacts that a specific development proposal is likely to have on the operation of roads and transport networks.

Crime—antisocial behaviour

Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Wednesday, 31 March 2021):

Canberra is a safe city with low crime rates.
