Planning Approvals Processes

What are the planning approval processes for the project? 

Project 1 – This project requires an environmental impact statement (EIS). The purpose of the EIS is to assess the project’s potential environmental impacts and determine how we manage these impacts.

An approved Development Application (DA) is also needed before construction can begin.

Approval of the EIS and the DA is managed by the ACT Government Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD).

Following a draft EIS being considered by EPSDD in 2019, a revised EIS for Project 1 has now been prepared and lodged with EPSDD along with a concurrent DA (201935509).  The DA is currently on public notification until the 14 August 2020.

A separate DA (202037223) was also required to be lodged with the revised EIS and concurrent DA to account for construction access to the main works in the vicinity of Homann Place.

Projects 2, 3 and 4 – Development Applications for Projects 2, 3 and 4 have now been received.
