Recently the ACT Government has undertaken an implementation review of the Pre-DA Community Consultation Guidelines. The final review report and outcomes of the review have been agreed by the Minister for Planning and Land Management.
The final report and summary of changes are available on the review webpage: https://www.planning.act.gov.au/talk-with-us/pre-da-consultations/pre-da-community-consultation-guidelines-review. The changes to the Guidelines and the Planning and Development Regulation 2008 are expected to be implemented by mid-2020, with a delayed commencement of 1 January 2021 to allow for the changes to be incorporated into new development proposals.
The Government will provide further communications about the commencement of the changes in due course. If members would like further information about the review, please contact Brad Maxwell, Project Lead, by email at email@example.com or by telephone at (02) 6205 7670.
