Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 15 February 2018) . . Page.. 294 ..

MS BERRY: The ACT government established the Suburban Land Agency under the City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency Act 2017. The Suburban Land Agency was established to deliver greenfield development and to encourage and promote urban renewal outside the defined precinct of the City Renewal Authority. To ensure that the ACT government has land available for development, strategic acquisition of privately held leases of land is required to provide for future development.

As I have stated previously, this government is committed to providing certainty, transparency and consistency in the information that is required to inform acquisition decisions and to ensure that these decisions are aligned with the government’s strategic plan for land management and development across the territory.

In order to meet its responsibilities, the agency provides me with a report after the end of each quarter on any land acquired by the agency during that quarter, providing any valuations and other information prescribed by the regulation.

The Suburban Land Agency has provided me with its acquisitions report for the period October to December 2017. During the reporting period the agency did not make any acquisitions. Madam Speaker, I commend the report to the Assembly.


Mr Ramsay presented the following paper:

Coroners Act, pursuant to subsection 102(8)—ACT Coroner’s Court—Annual report 2016-17, dated December 2017.
