Page.. 2405..


(3) There is no current development application under assessment, however the authority has been in discussion with the proponent to progress development on this site as soon as possible. On 9 June 2016, the proponent appealed the decision of the planning and land authority and the decision will now be reviewed by the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

(4) It is expected that the developer is ready to commence works as soon as a proposal is approved. Development approvals in the ACT usually require works to commence within two years, however it is expected that the shopping centre will be constructed within this time.

(5) Whilst the Government wishes to facilitate delivery of a centre in the shortest possible time, it also has a duty to ensure future residents within the new suburbs for Molonglo Valley receive an appropriate quality of development, which complies with the Territory Plan and the Planning and Development Act 2007.
