Notification date: 04 December 2018
Notifying body: ACT Planning and Land Authority
Legislation: Planning and Development Act 2007
The planning and land authority gives notice that a draft plan variation No 359 – Changes to the Tharwa Precinct Map and Code and removal of public land overlay (DV359) has been recommended to the Minister for Planning in accordance with part 5.3 of the Planning and Development Act 2007
DV359 incorporates the outcomes and recommendations of the Tharwa Village Plan into the Territory Plan and proposes to amend the Territory Plan by:
- removing the sport and recreation reserve public land overlay from the Territory Plan map for Block 10 Section 6 Tharwa as this is a historical mapping error and is not applicable to this block; and
- introducing built form controls into the Tharwa Precinct Map and Code including building and height controls, setbacks and plot ratio restrictions to reflect the existing or desired character of the village.
The recommended DV359 and report on consultation are available for public inspection at:
- Access Canberra, Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD) Shopfront, Ground Floor South, Dame Pattie Menzies House, 16 Challis Street, Dickson, Monday to Friday (except public holidays) between 8:30am and 4:30pm.
Section 72 of the Act does not apply to the recommended DV359 and therefore it does not have interim effect. The current Territory plan provisions will continue to apply while the Draft Variation remains in draft form.
