The Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal invites submissions to its inquiry into Planning for the Surgical Procedures, Interventional Radiology and Emergency Centre (SPIRE) and the Canberra Hospital campus and immediate surrounds.
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 with a growing city comes the need for increased medical and hospital infrastructure and facilities. The Committee has received petitions and extensive correspondence from the ACT Community about the planning and development of the Canberra Hospital Precinct and how it affects them. The Committee understands this is an important topic for ACT residents and that it is important for them to have the opportunity to have their say.’
The Committee’s terms of reference are accessible via the ACT Legislative Assembly website: https://www.parliament.act.gov.au/in-committees/standing-committees-current-assembly/standing-committee-on-planning-and-urban-renewal/inquiry-into-planning-for-the-SPIRE-and-the-canberra-hospital-campus-and-immediate-surrounds
