(Question No. 83)
Mr Corbell asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:
In relation to Block 1 Section 31 Braddon (Old Ainslie Primary School)
1. Is a development approval required for the proposal for Craft ACT to utilise spaces at the school and if so has an application been received
2. If an application has been received, does the proposal for use by Craft ACT require an expansion of car parking space on the lower oval.
Mr Smyth: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
1. Provided no external construction work, including signage, is undertaken, and provided the requirements of the heritage citation for the site are met, no development approval is required for the Craft Council of the ACT to occupy floorspace at the Ainslie Primary School. This is because the lease is in the name of the ACT Government, and allows for any purpose permissible under Community Facility landuse policy of the Territory Plan. The site is subject to the Community Facility landuse policy, which allows 'community activity centre', which includes the activities of the Craft Council.
2. No application in relation to the use of the premises by Craft ACT has been received.
