Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 3 Hansard (6 March) . . Page.. 603 ..

MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):

I present the following paper:

ActewAGL-Light post in Quiros Street Red Hill-Relocation-Answer to question without notice asked of Mr Smyth by Mr Kaine and taken on notice on 28 February 2001.

Redevelopment-Deakin oval

MR SMYTH: On 1 March, Ms Tucker asked whether the Croatia Deakin Football Club had complied with the requirements of a disallowable instrument. Mr Speaker, the grant of block 16 section 36 was made to the Croatia Deakin Football Club Inc as a community organisation. Checks at the time indicated that the club met all of the provisions described in part 1 of disallowable instrument No 131 of 2000. In response to Ms Tucker's specific question, the club does not hold a club licence. I apologise for the mistake in tabling the incorrect recommendation from the conservator in relation to block 16 section 36. The conservator, in order to ensure that all aspects in relation to this development were covered, issued two recommendations on 19 February 2001. I table the relevant recommendation. I present the following paper:

Land (Planning and Environment) Act-Croatia Deakin Soccer Club-Copy of recommendation of Conservator of Flora and Fauna to Executive Director, Land and Property, Environment ACT, dated 19 February 2001.

Parking for the disabled

MR SMYTH: Mr Osborne asked about disability parking in the ACT. There is a difference between ACT government car parks and those operated by private enterprise or other organisations. Disability parking spaces are free in ACT government car parks. In fact, holders of mobility parking scheme permits are able to park in any ACT government pay parking space free of charge for extended time periods compared with other motorists.

Parking at the airport is managed by the Canberra International Airport. It is not an ACT government car park. It is up to the airport's owners and managers to make their own commercial decisions about car park pricing, including the pricing of any disabled parking spaces.

In regard to the Bruce Stadium authority, it is an independent statutory authority. The authority has decided to apply a commercial parking charge to all of its customers. The authority, however, does provide easy access parking spaces suitable for use by holders of mobility scheme permits.

Discharge from Belconnen landfill

MR SMYTH: On 28 February, Mr Corbell asked for additional information on the testing that had been done on the material released from the Belconnen landfill. I table that. I present the following paper:

Belconnen Landfill-Discharge of retention ponds from Belconnen Landfill to Murrumbidgee River-Answer to question without notice asked of Mr Smyth by Mr Corbell and taken on notice on 27 February 2001.
