(1) In relation to the establishment of a scout hall at Yerrabi Pond, what is the condition of the demountable building being proposed to be relocated to the site;
(2) What other sites were considered and why were they not considered suitable;
(3) How many submissions regarding this development application have been received by the ACT Planning and Land Authority.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The demountable building is presently unused, and is partly dismantled. The building is in need of some maintenance and repainting.
(2) Four sites were identified. Three were considered not suitable due to vehicular access, one of these was constrained by the location of a sewer line and the other unduly impacted on usage of public open space.
(3) Sixty six submissions were received by the ACT Planning Authority in response to the notification of the Development Application.
