Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 11 Hansard (Thursday, 11 November 2021) . . Page.. 3421 ..

Lastly, the bill will amend the Land Titles Act 1925. The proposed amendments relate to building management statements, which are binding agreements for building lessees for the maintenance and administration of a building, obviously with multiple lessees. The changes clarify the application and approval process for a building management statement, including who can apply and what information must be included on the application. Lessees may apply to act before approval of the statement but after passage of the bill. They merely have to ensure that the statement includes elements required under section 123F. Very obvious things, I would point out, include the establishment of the committee office holders, and the process for resolving disputes and for a five-yearly review of the agreement.

As I said, the Canberra Liberals will be supporting this bill, which does include minor amendments to other pieces of legislation. I do want to thank the minister for arranging a briefing from EPSDD officials and from his office. I commend this bill to the Assembly.

MS CLAY (Ginninderra) (6.37): The Greens are happy to support this bill. It makes minor technical changes to ensure that several pieces of legislation are clear, concise and up to date. It relates to requirements for building management standards, the form of land management agreements and the signing of documents related to unit title plans. The amendments are minor in nature. The changes they make are necessary and worthwhile improvements, and they assist the government in agility and responsiveness. The Greens are happy to support this bill.

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella‚ÄĒManager of Government Business, Minister for Corrections, Minister for Industrial Relations and Workplace Safety, Minister for Planning and Land Management and Minister for Police and Emergency Services)¬†(6.37), in reply: I thank members for their comments and input into this bill and commend the bill to the Assembly.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.

City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency Amendment Bill 2021

Debate resumed from 8 October 2021, on motion by Ms Berry:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR CAIN (Ginninderra) (6.38): I rise to speak in support of this bill, which, I will say, while the minister described it in her presentation speech as administrative in nature, certainly has far-reaching ramifications, some of which I will touch on briefly in my speech.
