are less well off in the community. Also, 36 places will be provided for people with dementia and, importantly, 18 of these will be low care dementia-specific places which are currently in short supply in the ACT.

Under the provisions of the land act, I have the power to consider a development application if, in my opinion, the application raises a major policy issue, the application seeks approval for a development that may have a substantial effect on the achievement or development of objectives of the territory plan or the approval or refusal of the application would provide a substantial public benefit.

Section 229B of the act specifies that if I decide an application I must table a statement in the Assembly within three sittings days of the decision. I have tabled this statement today, providing a description of the development, details of the land on which the development is proposed to take place, the name of the applicant, the details of my decision and the grounds for the decisions, and I have also tabled the comments of the ACT Planning and Land Council on this proposal.
