The National Capital Authority invites public comment on a draft Development Control Plan (DCP) to guide future development of Part Block 1633 in Tuggeranong.
The ACT Government recently announced a request for proposals to support the development of up to 40 megawatts of large-scale solar generation in the Territory.
The NCA received a request from CB Richard Ellis to establish a DCP for Part Block 1633 Tuggeranong, as it has been identified as a possible location for these solar generation facilities.
As the site is adjacent to an Approach Route under the National Capital Plan, the NCA is required to produce a DCP.
Draft DCP 12/08 will establishes planning and urban design provisions for the area, including building height, setbacks and design, landscape character, access and parking.
The NCA's Chief Planner, Mr Andrew Smith said the draft DCP has been prepared to guide the future development of the site within the framework of the National Capital Plan and the Territory Plan.
"The draft DCP maintains the integrity of the approach route, and ensures the setting, buildings and purpose of development enhance the area," said Mr Smith.
An advertisement will appear in The Canberra Times tomorrow, inviting public comment.
The draft DCP can be downloaded here, or viewed at the NCA reception and National Capital Exhibition.
