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). Both the EIS and the DA for Project 1 have now been lodged with the EPSDD for assessment.

A final EIS for Project 1 is now being developed.

Projects 2, 3 and 4 – Development Applications for Projects 2, 3 and 4 have been lodged for assessment and will have a separate consultation period.
