The Memorial(s) Development Committee has put out a media release on their revised plans for dedicated memorials to World Wars One and Two on Anzac Parade.
“We have made some design modifications as a result of the community’s feedback and a review by an accredited architectural expert. These modifications will reduce the footprint of the memorials by up to 25 percent.
“They will be repositioned on the allocated Rond Terrace site to preserve the Parliament House/Australian War Memorial vista and to ensure continued public access to the Rond Terrace site for local community events.
“Their realignment and repositioning will in no way change the original commemorative purpose nor design intent” Mr Buick said.
The next step in the process is for the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, Tony Burke, to consider the EPBC Referral.
