As part of the Demonstration Housing Project, Verdant was required to present the design to the National Capital Design Review Panel and is currently undertaking community consultation prior to lodging its development application.
The development application will be lodged, along with a site-specific Territory Plan variation, after the closure of community consultation. Due to the current lockdown, community consultation will now be extended until 5 pm Friday 17 September 2021.
A timeline of consultation measures undertaken to date is set out below:
