Planning, Public works and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee
MS PORTER (Ginninderra) (5.58): I present the following report:
Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee—Report 1—Report on Annual and Financial Reports 2007-2008, dated 13 May 2009, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.
That the report be noted.
The Standing Committee on Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services considered the annual reports for 2007-08. It looked into the annual reports of the ACT Land Development Agency, the ACT Planning and Land Authority, the Canberra Public Cemeteries Trust and the Department of Territory and Municipal Services.
The report focused on those issues raised and assessed during the committee’s three public hearings and made four recommendations pertaining to them. These were options for wheelchair accessible taxis; ACTPLA staff’s awareness of its agency’s delegations; ACTPLA’s reporting on government contracting; and public consultation by the Land Development Agency on land release programs.
In closing, I would like to thank ministers, officials and stakeholders who assisted the committee during this inquiry; the committee secretary, Nicola Derigo, and the committee office; and, of course, I would like to thank my fellow committee members, Ms Caroline Le Couteur and Mr Alistair Coe. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
