Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 12 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 November 2021) . . Page.. 3459 ..


In light of the minister’s commitment, the committee will not be inquiring further into the matters raised in petition 22-21.

Statement by chair

MS CLAY (Ginninderra) (10.13): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Planning, Transport and City Services relating to a draft variation. The draft variation to the Territory Plan No 369 titled “living infrastructure in residential zones” proposes changes to soft landscaping in all residential areas. Draft variation 369:

Responds to action 2 of Canberra’s living infrastructure plan: cooling the city, which seeks to achieve 30 per cent tree canopy cover, or the equivalent, and 30 per cent permeable surfaces in urban areas by 2045.

DV369 will also assist in working towards achieving these targets for urban areas by making changes related to site coverage and planting area requirements on private land in all residential zones—RZ1 to RZ5.

The committee notes that there has been considerable community interest in the proposed changes made by DV369 and has resolved to undertake an inquiry into the impact of these changes 12 to 18 months after the variation has been implemented.
