By Ms Lawder, from 185 residents:
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory
This petition of Tuggeranong Residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that: Sun Shade is needed at the playground at Lake Tuggeranong near the Learn to Ride Park, Mortimer Lewis Drive, Greenway.
Tuggeranong Residents therefore request the Assembly to: Provide Sun Shade at the Playground at Mortimer Lewis Drive, Greenway.
The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and referred to the appropriate ministers for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petition was received.
The following response to a petition has been lodged:
Draft variation 344 to the Territory Plan—petition 32-17
By Mr Gentleman, Minister for Planning and Land Management, dated 14 February 2018, in response to a petition lodged by Mr Steel on 30 November 2017 concerning a request to delay the approval of draft variation No 344 to the Territory Plan.
The response read as follows:
Dear Mr Duncan
Thank you for your letter of 30 November 2017 regarding petition No 32-17 lodged by Mr Steel MLA on behalf of certain Australian Capital Territory residents.
I note the contents of the petition and request to the Assembly.
In addressing the petition I note there is no section 10 in Woden. My response is therefore based on the assumption that the petition reference is to sections 3 and 9, which both lie adjacent to section 69 in Lyons and contains the Bellerive multi-unit residential development.
In regards to the first item, the Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal has completed its inquiry into DV344 and has published its recommendations. I will make a decision on the variation once the planning authority reviews and addresses each of the recommendations made by the Committee. Notwithstanding this, DV344 currently has interim effect, which means that under section 72 of the Planning and Development Act 2007, development applications must be assessed as if the provisions of DV344 are part of the Territory Plan.
