The Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal invites submissions to its inquiry into Engagement with Development Application Processes in the ACT.
On the lodgement of the Committee’s terms of reference on its website, the Committee Chair, Caroline Le Couteur MLA, said:
‘Canberra is clearly a growing city and as each new construction is subject to the Development Application process the Committee has received increased levels of correspondence from the ACT Community about the Development Application process and how it affects them.’
The Committee’s terms of reference are accessible via the ACT Legislative Assembly website:
