(3) The SLA has not identified any alternate locations in Throsby. The Throsby community garden proposal was progressed as a possible partnership with the Woodlands and Wetlands Trust.

(4) As the community has opposed the proposed location, the Woodlands and Wetlands Trust is not prioritising development of this site. The SLA does not intend to undertake further consultation around a proposed community garden adjacent to the Learning Centre in Throsby.

Had the project progressed, detailed design would have considered cost, constructability and operational issues in assessing viability.

(6) TCCS advised that it would consider any risk associated with waterflow on the site in any licencing application.

(7) No. This was recommended in the consultation as the next step if the project was to progress.

(8) Parking was to be accommodated in the Learning Centre facility.
