Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 57

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.

The ACT Government has been a significant partner in this development proposal and there has been no independent review of the numerous studies submitted by the developer. With such a large project, in such an environmentally sensitive area, it is vital that there is transparency in the decision making process.

We encourage everyone to express their concerns about the proposed EIS exemption. Public comments will close on the 1 May 2018 so there is only a little time left. To help with this, we have drafted some comments for you to consider and then email to the Chief Planning Executive. This is on our website at Public comment on Ginninderry's application for EIS exemption.

Cheers,

Darryl Seto
(for the Ginninderra Falls Committee)
