Structure and concept planning were completed and incorporated into the Territory Plan in 2003 and 2008, respectively.

An Estate Development Plan development application (DA) for Jacka 1 residential estate was lodged by the Land Development Agency on

23 November 2011. The public notification for the DA was between

30 November 2011 and 21 December 2011. The application is presently under assessment by the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA).

The Jacka 1 residential estate is located south of Horse Park Heritage Precinct and Wetlands.

(3) Cultural and heritage studies were undertaken by ACTPLA (the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate) as part of the North Gungahlin Structure Plan (Variation 130). Further studies were subsequently undertaken by ACTPLA as part of the Jacka Concept Plan. The Concept Plan is available on the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate website.

The Land Development Agency is currently undertaking a heritage assessment for the remaining area of Jacka.

(5) The ACT Government, through various Directorates, undertakes a wide range of studies including: capital works (feasibility, forward design), planning (strategic, concept, estate, land supply/programming), environmental (surveys and monitoring), education (demographic, facility), commercial (demand and forecasting) as required to ensure the timely delivery of land and services.

(6) Yes, EPBC referrals are prepared as and when required.
