Renewal Authority was established to encourage and promote a vibrant city through the delivery of design-led, people-focused urban renewal.

In accordance with the act the authority is to prepare, and I am to report to the Legislative Assembly, after the end of each quarter details of any land acquired by the authority during the quarter, all valuations of the acquired land that the authority considered in relation to the acquisition and any other information prescribed by regulation for the report.

I have received the first quarterly report from the authority. This report states that the authority did not undertake any land acquisition during the period 1 July to 30 September 2017. I commend the report to the Assembly.
