‘Mooseheads’ in the City; if so, what will become of the public carpark which incorporates most of Block 23 and will a new building include public parking.
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
The Government is giving consideration to including the release of part Section 19 Block 23, City in the Land Release Program for 2008/09. If the site is included in the Land Release Program, it will be released in accordance with the requirements of Amendment 59 to the National Capital Plan and the Urban Design Guidelines to be prepared by the National Capital Authority for a mixed use commercial development on the site.
Any development on the site will include a requirement for the provision of public car parking. The Government anticipates that the car parking requirement would exceed the number of public car parking spaces currently available on the site.
