ACTPLA greenlights new power station site

By johnboy 10 March 2009 5

The ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) have announced that the new power station (and data centre) location in Hume has passed the first hurdle with conditional approval.

    “Conditions are attached to the approval such as the requirement for approvals from government entities including the Environment Protection Authority and the Department of Territory and Municipal Services before work can begin,” Mr Savery said.

    “The application meets the requirements of the Territory Plan 2008 and the National Capital Plan Development Control Plan (DCP) for the site.

    “Conditions also require that a detailed design for landscaping of the site be provided, which will then need to be submitted to ACTPLA and the National Capital Authority (in the case of designated land) for further assessment. This landscaping design was a requirement of the DCP and will need to meet relevant Australian Standards.”

Peter – I can’t speak for all residents, but I still think that this location is a mistake. The valley is already pretty polluted and this will just add to the problem. It was never about ‘my back yard’ (I can’t even see the previous site from where I live) but the health impact – especially with our very asthmatic family. The rushing-through aspects don’t inspire confidence. Sigh.

I bet macarthur residents are pleased…. it has moved a bit down the road, but the toxic clouds and noise are still there for them to enjoy…

Um isn’t it, at this stage, way more data centre than it is power station?
