The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce regularly updates its website to reflect the latest design refinements to public housing projects. In order to accurately communicate to the broader community, the Public Housing Renewal Taskforce takes the required time to finalise summaries of meetings with community representatives before they are uploaded. The website for part Block 2 Section 21 in Holder is up to date as at 4 October 2017 following the most recent meetings with the Holder Community Action Group. The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce expects further updates to this website in the near future as the Development Application is prepared.
Land—Dickson land swap
Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Parton on Wednesday, 25 October 2017):
The CFMEU may sublease part of the building but only with the consent of the Lessor, being the Suburban Land Agency. No consent has been sought to date and the Suburban Land Agency is not aware of any subleasing arrangements outside of its consent.
Casino Canberra—development proposal
Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Lee on Wednesday, 25 October 2017):
21 May 2015 – Aquis Group met with Directorate officials and myself to present their proposal for the redevelopment. It should be noted that this meeting was purely for Aquis Entertainment to present its proposal and no minutes of the meeting were prepared.
27 August 2015 – Aquis Entertainment presented the Aquis Casino Canberra Redevelopment Proposal to ACT Government Directors-General. It should be noted that this meeting was purely for Aquis Entertainment to present its proposal and no minutes of the meeting were prepared.
17 July 2017 – Aquis Entertainment meeting with Enterprise Canberra following ACT Government election and restructures within ACT Government.
The minutes of the 17 July 2017 meeting reflect commercial in confidence negotiations between Aquis Entertainment and the ACT Government and contain information relevant to the assessment of Aquis Entertainment’s unsolicited proposal. Compliance with the terms of the unsolicited proposal Participation Agreement between Aquis Entertainment and the ACT Government prevent these documents from being made publicly available.
I can however confirm that the minutes demonstrate that matters relating to Block 24 Section 65 were not raised.
