Planning and Land Legislation Amendment Bill 2003
Debate resumed from 8 May 2003, on motion by Mr Corbell:
That the bill be agreed to in principle.
MRS DUNNE(3.35): The Liberal opposition will be supporting this legislation. It is a natural consequence of the passing of the Planning and Land Act 2002. Although the opposition opposed the passage of that legislation, it would be unwise, churlish and altogether silly to oppose this because it has a whole lot of consequential ramifications, the principal being the repeal of the Kingston Foreshore Development Authority Act and the Gungahlin Development Authority Act, as they become part of the Land Development Agency on 1 July 2003. We have no problems with the bill and offer our support to the government.
MR CORBELL(Minister for Health and Minister for Planning) (3.36), in reply: I thank the opposition for its support. As Mrs Dunne has outlined, this bill effectively puts in place the necessary structural changes to permit the Land Development Agency to undertake the functions of both the Kingston Foreshore Development Authority and the Gungahlin Development Authority.
