Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 09 Hansard (Thursday, 16 September 2021) . . Page.. 2708 ..


recommended noise levels for land zoned CZ2 ‘business’, including where they differ during different times of the day and (d) average, minimum and maximum noise levels emitted by Canberra Transport buses, disaggregated by type of bus.

(5) Can the Minister explain how the ordinarily prohibited development of public transport facilities in PRZ1 ‘residential’ can be reclassified as ‘ancillary use’ in the notice of decision for MPC DA 202138229, when the definition of ‘ancillary use’ for PRZ1 is ‘[supporting] the care, management and enjoyment of these open spaces including park maintenance depots [and] small-scale community activity centres’.

(6) Can the Minister provide information on how MPC DA 202138229 and MPC DA 202138251 were approved

(7) Were MPC DA 202138229 and MPC DA 202138251 correctly decided, and are they consistent with the requirements of the Planning and Development Act 2007.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Items (a) – (c) are correct. However, in response to item (d), Launceston Street, located to the north of Easty Street, is zoned TSZ1 Transport.

(2) Part (1)(a)-(b) are correct.

(3) A roundabout currently exists at the intersection of Easty Street and Wilbow Street. No changes are proposed for this roundabout as part of the works approved under DA 202138229 or DA 202138251. I am advised that Transport Canberra is currently in the process of reviewing future bus service operations throughout Woden Town Centre.

(4) Noise is regulated by the Environment Protection Act 1997 and the Environment Protection Regulation 2005. This legislation does not apply to noise generated by vehicles on public roads, animals, or people. Recommended noises levels for each of the specified zones are shown in the table below. Noise levels for zones located within the Woden Town Centre are higher than those in other locations. I am advised that all works approved under DA 202138229 and DA 202138251 are located within the Woden Town Centre.
