Land—block 24, city

Mr Barr (in reply to a question by Mr Hanson on Tuesday, 7 June 2016): The principal study on the Coranderrk Pond was undertaken as part of a consultancy on the feasibility of Parkes Way, which was commissioned in December 2013. That study formally identified the need to relocate the Coranderrk Pond and identified Glebe Park as the preferred site.

Land—block 24, city

Mr Barr (in reply to supplementary questions by Mr Doszpot and Mr Coe on Tuesday, 7 June 2016): Yes. A Development Application for works valued at over $1 million was lodged by the former owner.

Development on the site was in accordance with the Development Application and met the requirements of the lease.

The valuations were based on the market value of the site.

The LDA Board schedules eleven ordinary meetings each year and reviews the progress of LDA projects, such as City to the Lake, as part of its discussions.


Mr Rattenbury (in reply to a question by Mr Doszpot on Wednesday, 8 June 2016): The initial response to the Schools for All Report related to a $7 million commitment in the 2016-17 financial year.

The 2016-17 Budget Initiative ‘Better Schools - Schools for All’ is a significant increase from the previously announced commitment of $7 million. The initiative provides more than $12 million over four years to employ 26 additional staff to provide support for students with complex needs and disability. Further, the Government has increased its commitment by $2.6 million to a total of $5.6 million, to develop or upgrade safe sensory spaces.

Since the release of the Schools for All Report in November 2015, the Education Directorate has spent approximately $0.9 million in response to the Recommendations of the Report. The majority of this expenditure relates to work across eight sites to develop and upgrade safe sensory spaces ($0.6 million).
