We believe this is a more reasonable response. I understand the intent proposed by Ms Le Couteur, but we do not believe it is necessary for it to be placed into the act itself.

Amendment negatived.

MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (5.02): I move amendment No 2 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5758]. It is even shorter than my first one. As I noted earlier, there are greenfield areas which are exempted from pre-DA consultation in the bill, which makes sense. If there are no inhabitants, they cannot be consulted with. All my amendment does is say that every five years the authority should revisit these areas just to ensure that the exemptions still makes sense given the state of the community there.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (5.03): The government will be supporting this amendment. The government is happy to accept that it would be desirable to review those areas in new development areas that are no longer exempt from requirements for pre-DA notification and consultation, particularly as those areas develop and mature and no longer are seen as part of urban development fronts.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill, as a whole, as amended, agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.


Motion by Mr Corbell proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

Australian Masters Games

Canberra Institute of Technology—creative industries showcase

MR DOSZPOT (Brindabella) (5.04): At the 2011 Australian Masters Games in Adelaide on 7 to 16 October, the Canberra Old Boys Masters Team won two gold medals in the category of masters soccer. They won gold for the over-55 division as there was only one team entered. Then they were placed in the over-50 division as well and, after recruiting two over-50 players locally, proceeded to put the younger teams to the sword to win their second gold medal—an impressive performance when you consider the team’s average age was 58 and included seven players aged over 60. Over six days, the Old Boys played nine 60-minute games; after losing the first game, the Old Boys won all the rest of the games, scoring 17 goals with five against—great defensive efforts from Bill Hardie, Les Herbert, Woody Elliott, Alan Greenslade, Wally Hoefel and Momo Radulovich.
