ACT government officials called to explain why two land agencies are needed instead of one Of the Suburban Land Agency staff, 14 would work in sales and marketing, 14 on urban development outside the special city precinct, such as Red Hill, Southquay and the brickworks, 27 on new suburbs and seven on valuations and estate management.
Of the rest, 11 would work in finance and four in the chief executive's office. The new organisations replace the troubled Land Development Agency, which has been criticised for the way it has bought and sold land, including a damning audit into its purchases in the city West Basin. Mr Bulless said the Suburban Land Agency's role would be very different. It would not make decisions about buying land a job that would oakley sunglass outlet be in the hands of the government and the directorate. Unlike the half jacket Land Development Agency, which could make acquisition decisions below a particular price threshold, the SLA will only be able to buy land with the approval of the minister. If a landowner came to the government to sell their property, the directorate would assess the proposal and advise the government, which would make the decision, he said. "The SLA's only role will be the mechanism by which to acquire that property. It won't have a decision making role and it won't be assessing," he said. Questioned about the big prices the Land Development Agency has been making from land in new suburbs, an acting director, Simon Tennent, said while prices had peaked at $1000 a square metre that was only in a small part of Throsby in Gungahlin. In Moncrieff last year, the median price was $565 a square metre, up to between $600 a $700 a square metre this year. The average overall for 2017 so far oakley sunglasses factory outlet was about $800 a square metre. As to the large number of apartments hitting the market, Mr Tennant said 4100 of the 16,250 new homes over the coming years would be single residential homes about 25 per cent. Another 1600 would be medium density, including townhouses. And the rest, about 10,550, would be apartments, in buildings of three storeys or higher. Mr Tennent said the government was releasing more dwellings than the market demand for between 2800 and 3000 a year. While the overall release of 16,500 over four years was about 1000 lower than usual, that was because the asset recycling program ended in the third year, he said.
The Greens' Caroline Le Couteur has criticised the make up of the new boards, which she says don't have enough expertise in sustainable development and affordable housing. In May, the Greens amended the legislation that set up the agencies in May to include a deals on oakley sunglasses requirement for that expertise, but Mr Ponton said the government had already shortlisted the new board members before the legislation was passed. Officials had taken the Greens' views into account in the appointments, he said.
