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

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: Variation 340 to the territory plan proposes to amend the structure plan, concept plan and zone boundaries applying to parts of blocks 15 and 16 section 99 Holt. These amendments, contained in variation 340, do not alter the future development of the site for residential purposes. Variation 340 reflects recent changes to future development intentions for the transmission corridor. As such, it is no longer feasible or desirable to place the transmission lines underground. Additionally, the golf club has decided not to relocate the existing golf clubhouse. Rather, the club intends to rezone the clubhouse site and immediate surrounds to the PRZ2 restricted access recreation zone to reflect this decision. In this regard variation 340 represents a relatively minor change to the territory plan. This resulted in consequential changes to the future urban area overlay and the Holt precinct map in order to reflect the new development intentions and boundaries.

The changes that prompted variation 340 provided an opportunity to update the structure plan for the site to reflect current terminology for bushfire provisions. This change does not alter the bushfire policies applying to the site.

An amendment was also made to the concept plan for the site, allowing zoning of the transmission corridor to PRZ1, urban open space zone. This is consistent with the current practices for zoning of transmission corridors in other future urban areas.

Variation 340 was released for public comment between 6 November last year and 21 December. Lessees of the surrounding sections and rural blocks were also notified in accordance with the requirements of the planning legislation. There were no public submissions.

A report on consultation was prepared by the ACT Planning and Land Authority detailing the consultation processes. I have used my discretion under section 73 of the Planning and Development Act not to refer the draft variation to the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services, as I believe that the variation is relatively minor in nature and was not controversial.
