I am a member of the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services which is conducting an inquiry into Draft Variation to the Territory Plan No 308 – Cooyong Street Urban Renewal Area. On 6 March 2013 the committee was briefed by officials from the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate (ESDD) on the draft variation. This was followed by an inspection of the site at Braddon and Reid. We were joined by Mr David Collett, Senior Director, Asset management, Community Services Directorate (CSD). Mr Collett briefed the Committee on the CSD’s proposal for the re-development of the site.
The Committee resolved to hear from all submitters who expressed a wish to appear as a witness, and to invite the submitters who supported the draft variation to also appear as witnesses. The first public hearing was on 2 May and the second hearing is scheduled for 22 May 2013.
