An NCCC representation on DA202036926 on a proposed LEASE VARIATION – To vary the Crown lease to permit increased vehicular access from Angas Street
The North Canberra Community Council (NCCC) believes that the Draft Variation no.368 (DV368) should not proceed to the Committee stage until there has been a more extensive consultation process number of outstanding issues relating to heritage, planning and sustainability
The NCCC notes that to date, the EPBC Act, with all its good intentions, has failed to arrest or reverse the continuing decline of biodiversity in Australia. A much more drastic,
radical, proactive and effective way needs to be found to address this fundamental crisis.
The ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal has varied the conditions of approval of a Northbourne Avenue development. As a result of an appeal brought by the North Canberra Community Council, the Tribunal ordered changes to the conditions that apply to the proposed development. The changes include reducing building heights, increasing on-site parking and increasing solar access. The tribunal also acknowledged that broader traffic issues “cannot be properly addressed by looking at one development, or even one street, but needs a broader approach.” The tribunals’ decision is at http://acat.act.gov.au/decisions/north-canberra-community-council-v-act-planning-and-land-authority-and-anor-administrative-review-2019-acat-87
In a decision handed down late on Thursday, the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal overturned ACTPLA’s decision to approve a controversial redevelopment of the Woolworths’ car park in Dickson. The Tribunal determined the proposed development broke too many planning rules to be mitigated by conditions placed on its approval.
