Answers to questions

Public land

(Question No 238)

Ms Tucker asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice:

In relation to land in the ACT that is identified as "Public Land" in the Territory Plan map - could you provide a list of all land identified as Public Land that is leased to a person or organisation, grouped by suburb/ district, showing:

(a) the block and section numbers of the lease;

(b) the holder of the lease;

(c) the date the lease was granted;

(d) the purpose clause in the lease;

(e) the land use policy that applies to the lease;

(f) the purpose for which the land is reserved, as listed in Section 193 of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991;

(g) whether a plan of management has been prepared for the land, as described in subdivision 5.7.4 of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991, and if so, the date of completion of the plan.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(a) Section 209 of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 (the Land Act) provides that, on the written recommendation of the Conservator, the Executive may on behalf of the Commonwealth grant a lease over an area of Public Land except where it is reserved as a wilderness area. The Land Act defines Public Land as meaning land identified by the Territory Plan as Public Land.

There are a number of Public Land categories: Wilderness Area, National Park, Nature Reserve, Special Purpose Reserve, Urban Open Space, Cemetery or Burial Ground, Lake and Sport and Recreation Reserve. The Territory Plan shows these areas either coloured as light green (Urban Open Space Land use policy) or as areas designated 'Pa to Ph' on the Public Land Overlay in the Territory Plan. The Block and Section identifiers of leases that have been issued over these areas are too numerous to detail here and are separately included at Attachment 1.

While all reasonable effort has been made and numerous hours of the valuable time of a number of public servants has been spent to provide the information sought by the Member, it should not be taken to necessarily be complete and correct in absolutely every respect. I will be pleased to provide further information if the Member details her specific concerns.

(b) As per (a) above

(c) As per (a) above

(d) As per (a) above

(e) As per (a) above

(f) As per (a) above
