Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for the Environment and Heritage, upon notice, on 16 August 2019:

(2) In relation to part (2) of the answer to E19-518, why not, and have any ACT Heritage staff undertaken any training or professional development in the Recommendation.

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

1. (a) The work is being led by the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate, Output Class 1.2: Planning and Building Policy.

(b) Other agencies being consulted are the City Renewal Authority and Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate. Other output classes within the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate involved are Output Class 1.1 Planning Delivery, Output Class 2.1 Environment, Output Class 2.3 Heritage and Output Class 4.2 Urban Renewal.

(c) Consideration of how the nomination will apply to the preparation and implementation of key planning, urban renewal and environment policies and plans, and the development assessment process for development and infrastructure projects within the boundary of the area subject to the nomination. Consideration is also being given to the referral process and how this can be integrated into existing approval processes where it may be required.

Management and maintenance requirements as they apply to the subject area and possible implications under this nomination are also being considered. This is ongoing consideration and will inform advice for Government to consider in response to the Commonwealth.

The Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy has also asked that the ACT Government review the ‘Canberra the Planned National Capital -National Heritage Place EPBC Act Referral Guidelines’ (2013), which have been prepared to assist decision making processes about whether an action will require approval from the Australian Government Minister for the Environment under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth).
