Casey, Crace, and Foreshore changes withdrawn

johnboy 20 December 2010 2

ACTPLA have announced that they’re not pursuing changes to increase the density of Casey and Crace.

ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) Chief Planning Executive, Neil Savery, said that following an assessment of submissions and having regard to the provisions of the Planning and Development Act, some of the changes would no longer be progressed as a technical amendment.

It remains to be seen if the changes will be brought about by other means.

If any planning nerds want to chip in on this it would be appreciated.

At the Planning and Development Forum last week I made it clear I didn’t believe the Crace and Casey changes were of such a minor nature as to justify the public being notified just through a Technical Variation process.

The Kingston aspect is really about the dispute between two developers in Kingston, and the refusal a few months back due to the DA being for something that was too high.

So I’m guessing it is withdrawn so they can split off the Crace and Casey changes into their own variation and let the Kingston issue stand alone – probably with another objection/court case holding it up.

Well well well – that’s a bit of a backdown on the part of Andrew “Hates People With Gardens” Barr isn’t it? And interesting that he rolled out the CEO and didn’t make the announce himself. He doesn’t like to accept when his judgement has been wrong, does he?
