Draft Amendments to the National Capital Plan

Draft Amendment 78 – Stirling Ridge and Attunga Point

National Capital Plan Draft Amendment 78 – Stirling Ridge and Attunga Point (DA78) proposes to adjust current land use boundaries within Sections 17, 22 and 128 Yarralumla to accommodate diplomatic land use, to secure Stirling Ridge as an Open Space area and to foster management of Attunga Point as a possible future location for the Prime Minister’s Residence.

The draft amendment also seeks to remove the National Capital Use area intended as an extension to Empire Circuit, passing through part of Stirling Ridge and the former West Lake community to connect with Alexandrina Drive.

The proposed adjustment of land use boundaries results in a net increase in open space for the area while fulfilling the NCA’s responsibility to provide sites for the purposes of diplomatic use and for a future residence for the Prime Minister of Australia.

A public information session will be held on:

Tuesday 13 November 2012 at 6pm, at the Yarralumla Uniting Church, Denman Street Yarralumla 2600.

The NCA requests that people who want to attend, register their interest by completing the RSVP form at www.nationalcapital.gov.au/DA78rsvp.

Draft Amendment 79 – Removal of West Basin Pedestrian Bridge

National Capital Plan Draft Amendment 79– Removal of West Basin Pedestrian Bridge (DA79) proposes to remove from the National Capital Plan, all references to a pedestrian bridge connecting the Acton Peninsula to the Parliamentary Zone across the West Basin of Lake Burley Griffin.

DA79 is in response to Immigration Bridge Australia’s decision to use an alternate site for commemorative purposes.

A public information session on DA79 will be held on:

Wednesday 7 November 2012 from 12pm to 1pm at the National Capital Authority, Ground Floor Treasury Building, King Edward Terrace, PARKES ACT 2600

Draft Amendment 80 – Yarramundi Reach

The purpose of Draft Amendment 80 – Yarramundi Reach (DA80) is to remove the development reservation at Yarramundi Reach to more adequately reflect the capacity of the site for development.  DA80 will assist in protecting the natural and cultural heritage values of Yarramundi Reach.

A public information session on DA80 will be held on:

Wednesday 7 November 2012 from 1 pm to 2pm at the National Capital Authority, Ground Floor Treasury Building, King Edward Terrace, PARKES ACT 2600
