Papers and statement by minister

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations and Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development): For the information of members, I present the following papers:

Planning and Development Act, pursuant to subsection 79(1)—Approval of Variation No. 317 to the Territory Plan—Kambah Group Centre—Zoning changes and changes to the Kambah precinct maps and codes, dated 25 March 2014, together with background papers, a copy of the summaries and reports, and a copy of any direction or report required.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the papers.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: Variation No 317 to the territory plan draws on the recommendations of the Kambah group centre master plan. It amends the Kambah precinct map and code in the territory plan to introduce provisions to guide future development within the centre. The provisions will permit a moderate increase in maximum building heights and identify improvements to pedestrian and vehicle connections while retaining the character of the centre.

The zoning changes consist of rezoning the commercial CZ3 services area to the east of the main centre to CZ2 business zone to better reflect the existing commercial uses and to promote new uses more suited to the location. The variation also rezones a length of residual urban open space adjacent to the group centre from PRZ1 to CZ1 core to accommodate future pedestrian and road connections.

Variation 317 provides opportunity for government and private developers to deliver the vision proposed by the Kambah centre master plan. The changes are consistent with the vision of the ACT planning strategy by facilitating mixed-use development at commercial centres and locations close to main transport routes.
