What consultation process has been followed as part of this study.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

I will respond in my capacity as the Minister responsible for Bushfire Recovery, and as the Minister responsible for work undertaken by the Shaping Our Territory Implementation Group in the Chief Minister’s Department.

I refer the Member to the study Shaping Our Territory – Final Report: Opportunities for Non-Urban ACT and to the publication Shaping Our Territory – Business Case and Master Plan – Tidbinbilla for further information about potential activities and infrastructure that may be appropriate for Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

Sanmor Consulting Group, which was engaged following a tender process, is currently undertaking a study of the types of activities that may be appropriate at Tidbinbilla and the cost of implementing them. The consultants will also review the establishment of the Research and Nature Discovery Centres. The estimated cost of the project is $60,000.

The study is expected to be completed within the next few weeks and will be considered by Government before the end of the financial year.

Primary stakeholders have been consulted through workshops and meetings.
