Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 7 Hansard (2 August) . .

Page.. 2115..

MR BARR: On 19 May this year the government entered into a joint venture with the Riverview Group to undertake planning, development, construction, marketing and sale of land currently identified as west Belconnen and the adjoining lands in New South Wales. This will be a major development project in the ACT over the next 30 years, ultimately delivering around 11½ thousand homes and a significant amount of economic activity to the region.

The project has been under active consideration by the ACT government since 2009 and has been the subject of an extensive range of consultation and stakeholder engagement, planning, ecological, heritage, bushfire and infrastructure studies. The release of land will be in accordance with the ACT government's indicative land release program.

The project works to date have been conceived and developed on the basis of a set of suitability objectives that reflect the project's vision of creating a sustainable community of international significance in the nation's capital. The project will be sustainable over time socially, economically and ecologically. It will respond to the local and global environment, provide future beneficial change to occur in design infrastructure and regulatory mechanisms, be cost-effective, replicable and measurable, and act as a model that will aim to be the benchmark for sustainable development over the next 30 years.
