Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 13 Hansard (Thursday, 2 December 2021) . . Page.. 4174 ..


(4) Given the SLA documents did not make clear that the sites would be considered one package, when were interested parties informed of this and how were they informed.

(5) Did any of the submissions include consultation with the Ginninderra Sea Scouts.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. The purpose of the Place Design Brief is to capture community expectations for the development of a number of future land release sites in the Belconnen Town Centre. For example, the Place Design Brief also includes Lathlain Street Precinct which does not form part of the current land sale package named Belconnen Lakeshore. The Place Design Brief therefore does not define the extent of the Belconnen Lakeshore land release.

The land release documents such as the Request for Proposal (RFP) and Sales/Marketing Brochure (A Connected Waterfront Precinct) identified all four sites that are the subject of the land release.

2. No concerns were received during or post the three and a half month marketing campaign for the Belconnen Lakeshore land release.

3. The RFP contained a number of requirements for proposals to be compliant. Among those was that a compliant proposal includes a design proposal and an offer to purchase and develop both the Circus Site and the Former Water Police Site. The SLA is currently assessing compliant proposals.

4. During the RFP preparation period (17 June to 7 October) SLA held an industry briefing for interested participants to hear about the project and raise any questions. In addition, participants were able to raise any questions or clarifications during the RFP preparation period and up to seven days before RFP submissions were due.

5. The SLA is unable to provide any information on any of the submissions while the RFP process is ongoing. However, SLA can confirm that Ginninderra Sea Scouts actively participated during SLA’s community engagement period and contributed during preparation of the Place Design Brief.


Domestic and family violence—screening tools(Question No 539)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence, upon notice, on 12 November 2021:

(1) Does the ACT currently have a dedicated screening tool for domestic violence that is specific to pregnancy; if so, can the Minister provide further details; if not, are there any other mechanisms used to identify domestic violence during pregnancy.

(2) Does the ACT have a dedicated screening tool for domestic violence in other health-care settings, such as early childhood health services, mental health, alcohol and other drugs services; if so, can the Minister provide further details for each setting; if not, are there any other mechanisms used to identify domestic violence in these settings.
