99A. The petition requested the Assembly to retain existing green space in Hughes, Deakin and Garran and to design an integrated plan for the Red Hill natural environment, raising concerns about the potential for inappropriate development in the area.

The committee notes that the minister's response to the petition under standing order 100, refers to a resolution passed by the Assembly on 25 October 2017 which halts Territory Plan variations adjoining the Red Hill nature reserve until an integrated plan has been prepared for the nature reserve and surrounding areas.

The minister indicated that he has requested the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate to prepare an integrated plan that addresses the Assembly resolution and considers the cumulative effects of development in the area. He also indicated that community groups, environmental groups, key stakeholders and the general public will be consulted as part of this process.

Following consideration of the petition and the minister's response, the committee has determined that it will not be holding an inquiry into the matter at this time
