Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 03 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 March 2015) . . Page.. 743 ..

identified. Variation 338 Mitchell also attracted one public submission. Concerns were raised about stormwater quantity and quality, particularly in relation to the community gardens adjoining the site. Stormwater management is a matter well regulated by the territory plan and can and should be dealt with at the detailed stage of design as part of a future development application for the development of the site. EPD has responded to these matters.

Under section 73 of the Planning and Development Act I have exercised my discretion and not referred the draft variations to the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services as I believe there are no outstanding issues with any of these variations. I am pleased to table the approved variations to the territory plan—variation 304 commercial zones; variation 336 Symonston; and variation 338 Mitchell—and I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the papers.

MR COE (Ginninderra) (4.03): I thank the minister for moving that the papers be noted. I want to put on the record a request on behalf of the opposition—that is, for you, minister, to clarify what this variation means for the Giralang local centre. As you would be aware, the Giralang shops are under construction at present. They are currently up to about ground level, and there is considerable doubt in the community as to what DV304 means for that centre. With that said, we happily welcome the minister’s remarks now or very soon as to the impact it will have on the Giralang local centre.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
