(2) The current program sees the construction phase completed by March 2023, based on commencement in August 2022.

(3) See responses to Questions 1 and 2.

(4) The landfill capping forms part of the TCCS program for rehabilitation of the landfill site. The development of nearby blocks (taken to mean the future urban area surrounding the landfill site) is only permissible subject to an adjustment of the Landfill Environmental Clearance Zone (ECZ). Under the West Belconnen Concept Plan an adjustment of the ECZ is to be supported by an appropriate audit process and approval from the Environment Protection Authority. The design and placement of the cap are key considerations with respect to the likely effectiveness of any contamination containment, which needs to be assessed as part of the final audit process before seeking an adjustment of the ECZ. Once the ECZ adjustment takes place, development of the adjacent blocks will be permissible.

(5) All blocks from Section 60 have been released. 10 blocks in Section 60 that were released and exchanged have not yet been settled as they are located within the landfill ECZ.

(6) All blocks from Section 57 have been released and settled.

(7) Riverview Projects (ACT) Pty Ltd is the development manager working for and on behalf of the Ginninderry JV. The Development Manager has been in regular communication with TCCS on this project.

(8) This would depend on the individual circumstances of each buyer.
