Ms DUNN (Eastern Metropolitan) — My constituency question is for the Minister for Planning. It is in relation to the Ivanhoe shopping centre precinct. I have been contacted by many residents expressing strong views that new developments in the Ivanhoe activity area should respect the distinctive character and valued heritage elements and also respond sensitively to the topography of the area. They are most concerned that the discretionary controls at the moment provide opportunities for imposing dominant developments which will be detrimental to their vision for the area and do not enable an appropriate transition in height to surrounding lower scale buildings. Earlier this year the minister committed to introduce mandatory height controls in the Ivanhoe shopping centre precinct. When, Minister, will you actually be undertaking that work?
