Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 12 Hansard (24 November) . . Page.. 3667 ..

MR HIRD (continuing):

In conclusion, the Committee recognises that there is the need for a robust, well-founded and transparent system of evaluation and assessment of requests for traffic calming and Local Area Traffic Management schemes which should be used in conjunction with the application of experience and traffic engineering judgement.

This committee's findings will ensure that the system used in the ACT will live up to those expectations.

Question resolved in the affirmative.



Papers and Ministerial Statement

MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present, pursuant to section 29 of the Land Act 1991, Variation No. 96 to the Territory Plan relating to the Northbourne Avenue precinct. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, this variation is presented with the background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any directions or report required. I seek leave then to have my tabling statement incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The statement read as follows:

Mr Speaker, Variation No. 96 to the Territory Plan proposes to vary, for the land immediately adjacent to Northbourne Avenue:

the Land Use Policies and Overlays in the Territory Plan Map; and

the Residential, Commercial E and Commercial A Land Use Policies in the Territory Plan Written Statement.

The draft Variation was released for public comment on 6 November 1998, with the closing date for comments being 21 December 1998.

As a result of the public consultation process, the draft Variation has been revised in a number of aspects, the most significant revision being:

The reduction of the maximum building height, for the areas identified as landmark nodes, from 40 metres to 32 metres. The reduced height generally reflects the height of existing development such as Macarthur House and Northbourne House.
