Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 3 Hansard (23 October) . . Page.. 4037 ..
The land has been sold to Community Housing Canberra for market value. Egan's National Valuers has determined a value of $200,000. There has also been broad consultation with the community about the development of the land. The government considers that direct sale of the land is in the public interest. This project will provide an increase in housing choice for people on lower incomes whilst strengthening the community housing sector. There will also be local employment benefits generated by the development.

Grant of a further rural lease
Disallowable instrument DI2003-254
MR CORBELL(Minister for Health and Minister for Planning): I seek leave to correct a statement I made in the Assembly earlier today.
MR CORBELL: In the Assembly earlier today, during the debate in relation to the disallowance motion proposed by Mrs Dunne, I indicated that there were only two lessees in the Molonglo Valley. In fact, there are three. All improvements on these leases are owned by the lessees. I indicated that there were some territory improvements. That is not correct. Finally, in relation to the Booth and Tennent leases, I indicated that these were not for 99 years. In fact, they are, but with a withdrawal clause which has the same effect as having a shorter lease.
