Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 04 Hansard (Thursday, 30 March 2017) . . Page.. 1360 ..
280 residential dwellings. Minister, will this development in Phillip have a supportive housing component?
MS BERRY: I know the block that Mr Parton is talking about, but I will have to get some advice about what is actually happening on that block. I will get that detail and I will bring it back to the Assembly.
MR PARTON: Can the minister please give us a detailed definition of exactly what supportive housing is and how that definition perhaps has changed in regard to planning guidelines? We are a little unclear on it.
MS BERRY: The definition has not changed. Community facilities land can be used for a number of things, including aged care, child care and supportive housing. Supportive housing is supported housing where a person lives in housing and is supported by someone, in this case the government.
MR HANSON: What percentage of the 280 residential dwellings would be an appropriate number of public housing or supported housing to fit in with the government’s salt and pepper strategy?
MS BERRY: I am sorry, Mr Hanson; I missed the start of that.
MR HANSON: Of the 280 dwellings that are being built, what number of those could be public or supported housing to fit in with the government’s salt and pepper strategy?
MS BERRY: All of the housing that is being developed meets with the government’s salt and pepper strategy.
Mr Hanson: So all 280 could be public housing?
MS BERRY: 280 across the city?
MS BERRY: Phillip?
MS BERRY: I am sorry, I did not realise you were referring to Phillip.
Mr Hanson: The question was about a specific development in Phillip.
MS BERRY: The interruptions do not really help. If you can just shush for a moment so that I can respond to the question now I have had it clarified.
Mr Hanson: You asked me about six times for clarification.
