Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 13 Hansard (18 November) . . Page.. 5775..

Plan which contains requirements for the Murrumbidgee and Molonglo River Corridors. Appendix F contains provisions specific to the Tharwa/Cuppacumbalong area. The Territory Plan cannot be inconsistent with the National Capital Plan. Where an inconsistency is identified, the National Capital Plan applies.

The Territory Plan includes the land in the non urban NUZ4 river corridor zone. Land within this zone is subject to the non urban zones development code. This code contains a range of development controls that apply to all land within the NUZ4 river corridor zone reflecting the sensitive nature of all rivers in the ACT including the Murrumbidgee. There are also two controls within the non urban zones development code that relate specifically to the Tharwa/Cuppacumbalong area. These are:


Development is of low intensity on large blocks permitting point source retention of storm water run off and opportunities for large scale landscaping. Stormwater run off should be contained on site.


Development, including existing uses, incorporates measures to minimise impacts on the ecology and improve the visual character of the locality.

There is also a range of controls in the general codes of the Territory Plan that would apply depending on the nature of any development proposed. These controls relate to land uses, buildings and structures, sewerage treatment, water supply and stormwater management and water sensitive urban design. Also applying to the site are the Building Code of Australia, Land Management Agreements and individual lease clauses.

(6) Yes. A master plan for the village of Tharwa is programmed for the 2011-12 year. The ACT Planning and Land Authority will consider all relevant issues for triple bottom line sustainability, including tourism as it is a key destination on Tourist Drive 5.
