Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 58

Ginninderry Stage 1

Most of you will be aware by now that our appeal against Ginninderry Stage 1 to the ACT Civil and Administrative Appeals Tribunal was withdrawn in February. For us the critical deal was the agreement by all parties involved on further measures to protect the Little Eagle and Scarlet Robin. Dr Steve Debus, a well-known bird expert who has worked on the Little Eagle in New England, has now joined the ACT Government’s Little Eagle Research Panel.

As reported in the Canberra Times on 2 April "The joint venture behind the huge Ginninderry cross-border residential development has applied for an environmental impact statement exemption for the vast bulk of the land release on the territory side of the border." See also the notice from the ACT Planning website.

It has been a little while since my last Newsletter. Late last year, we went to the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal against an ACT planning decision which could have potentially affected both the Little Eagles' nest site near Strathnairn and the Scarlet Robin. Following an agreement with the ACT government and the developer, we have now withdrawn the appeal.

There should be a Media Release out soon.
