Environment and Transport and City Services—Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MISS C BURCH (Kurrajong) (11.30): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Environment and Transport and City Services relating to the nature in our city inquiry.

The committee was pleased to receive 69 submissions from the community, from scientists, landscape architects, urban planners, wildlife and conservation groups, statutory office holders, utility companies, sport and recreation groups, neighbourhood groups, community advocates, and individual citizens.

Given the current high workload of members across all committees, the committee has concluded that additional time is needed to fully examine the large number of detailed and substantial submissions to nature in our city; therefore, it will be extending the reporting date to the end of July 2019. The committee will be contacting each submitter to explain the reasons for the extension of the inquiry and to keep them informed. The committee will soon announce a hearing schedule that is likely to be in early 2019.
