Notice given 18 November 2003

2383  Senator Allison: To ask the Minister for Defence—

(1) When will the lease for Point Nepean be signed.

(2) Which body will ultimately be responsible for overseeing and managing the lease.

(3) As the guidelines laid out in the draft lease only refer to the protection of the beach and foreshore in terms of requiring the lessee to provide managed public access to these areas, can the Minister confirm there will be no development on the beach or foreshore; if so, what measures will be taken to ensure this; if not, why not.

(4) Will the woodland area on the site be protected from clearing and development; if so, what measures will be taken to ensure this; if not, why not.

(5) When will the site or the heritage parts of the site be added to the Commonwealth list.
