Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 1 Hansard (17 February) . . Page.. 380..
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
ACTPLA has not received an amendment to reduce the stack heights for the proposal on Block 20 Section 23 Hume.
The conditions of approval in the Notice of Decision dated 6 March 2009 required details of the stacks and a detailed visual assessment of the stacks to be prepared to the satisfaction of the National Capital Authority (NCA). This was required to satisfy the NCA that any elements of the stack heights above 30 metres would be acceptable in relation to visual amenity.
The proponent provided a visual assessment with in principle support from the NCA for a stack height of 35m, which is consistent with the notice of decision. The proponent stated in the report that the results of modelling for air quality and plume dispersion meets the required standards at a stack height of 35m.
The submission to satisfy the conditions of approval did not contain any changes to the stack heights so the previous studies on air quality remained relevant.
