Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 12 Hansard (Thursday, 26 October 2017) . . Page.. 4464 ..


Director-General of the then Economic Development Directorate, and the transaction was completed by the Land Development Agency.

There is a requirement to continue the availability of public car parking, as I have indicated in previous answers to questions on this matter, and the parties agreed to defer settlement on block 20 section 34 so it would remain a publically accessible car park until the supermarket development on the other side of the Dickson group centre was completed. The parties also agreed that the occupant of block 6 section 72 could remain in place with peppercorn rent for 40 months with market rent payable thereafter.

MR PARTON: Chief Minister, will you take on notice and provide to me at some stage—I am going to suggest a week as an artificial deadline—a copy of the advertisement or tender for the sale of the block of land next to the Dickson Tradies?

I will need to see it before it goes to Mr Coe’s office to verify that it is the information that I am being asked about today. It will likely be next week.
