Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services—Standing Committee

Statement by deputy chair

MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo): I now have the 246A statement for the planning committee and, as deputy chair, I would be happy to present it. The 246A statement is on the inquiry into the Tidbinbilla revised draft plan of management 2011. The Planning and Development Act 2007 requires all public land to have a plan of management which details how land management objectives prescribed in the act are to be met.

In May 2010 the Department of Territory and Municipal Services released the Tidbinbilla draft plan of management for public comment. Following the public consultation process, a revised draft was prepared and referred, along with the accompanying consultation report, to the Standing Committee on Planning, Public Works and Territory and Municipal Services for its consideration.

The committee has decided to conduct an inquiry into the revised draft plan of management, which sets out directions for the management of Tidbinbilla for the next decade and covers a range of issues, including community and corporate involvement, natural and cultural values, recreation and tourism, education, research, environmental planning, protection and management, and a proposed master plan to consider more detailed or site planning.

The committee’s inquiry will allow for comment on any one or more of these issues covered by the Tidbinbilla plan of management. Written submissions are due by 22 July 2011, with the committee expecting to complete its inquiry by the end of September.

Standing committees


Motion (by Mr Corbell), pursuant to standing order 223, agreed to:
