(1) As groundwater at the site did not require remediation, only impacts to soils were remediated. The soil impacts were bioremediated (the use of microbes) on-site using EPA approved methods prior to the soil being disposed of off-site to EPA licensed facilities.
(2) Remedial works at the former Rivett service station site commenced in 2005.
(3) Remedial works including a Human Health and Environment Risk Assessment for the site were completed in 2011 prior to finalisation of the statutory site audit in 2012.
(4) The Crown lease does not include timeframes for development of the site. The Crown lease was granted on 26 February 2013. If the Crown lease is not used for the purpose for which it was granted, ESDD may commence compliance action against the lessee.
(5) The standard completion time frame for a development after approval of a development application is to complete the development two years after the date of the commencement of the development.
Crime—car tyre slashing
(Question No 305)
Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 5 June 2014:
What police resources are allocated to catching the person responsible for tyre slashing in Narrabundah and Griffith.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
ACT Policing has dedicated significant resources and undertaken specific operations in response to reports of tyre slashing offences, which have occurred over an extended period of time, in the Narrabundah and Griffith areas.
On 14 April 2014, Station Sergeant Andrew Bailey, Officer-in-Charge of Woden Police Station, provided your office with a personal briefing about ACT Policing’s on-going activities and investigations into reports of tyre slashing offences in the Narrabundah and Griffith areas. Due to on-going policing operations and investigations, full details of the police operations could not be disclosed more publically so as not to interfere with police investigations.
On 14 June 2014, a 68yr old male was apprehended by ACT Policing following a lengthy police operation and investigation. ACT Policing executed a search warrant on the man’s home and a number of evidentiary items were seized. The man was arrested and taken to Woden Police Station where he was later released after interview. It is anticipated that the man will be summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date. It should be noted that the apprehension of this man strictly relates to only one specific incident of vehicle tyre damage.
This apprehension of the male was reported via a police media release.
Police suspect this incident may be linked to other incidents of a similar nature in this area, and police investigations are continuing.
