Public consultation has now closed

Update 26 June 2020

As an update, representatives from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (the Department), the National Capital Authority (NCA) and Doma Group met on 25 June 2020 to discuss and agree on how to respond to new information reported through the media on potential Aboriginal heritage matters of significance to local Indigenous communities relating to the site for Doma Group’s ‘Foothills’ development in Campbell.

Doma Group advised it will undertake further assessment of the site for its potential Indigenous cultural heritage, and is currently recruiting the necessary expertise to undertake this process. This process will include a mechanism to consult with relevant Indigenous representatives to receive and ascertain the validity of additional information.

Doma Group will continue to work with the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment and the National Capital Authority during this process.

Please see here for any further information during the process.

The National Capital Authority (NCA) has received a Letter of Consistency** application from DOMA Group for the Stage 1 residential development and associated civil and landscape works located on Blocks 4 and 5 Section 38 Campbell. The process is similar to a Work Approval Application, however a Letter of Consistency is sought, as the site is located outside of a Designated Area.

**There are some areas outside of NCA 'Designated Areas' that are important to character of the National Capital but not to the extent of Designated Areas. These areas are subject to Special Requirements under the National Capital Plan (NCP). 

The NCP sets out Special Requirements for development of these areas in the interests of the National Capital. Special Requirements are given effect either by Principles and Policies in the National Capital Plan or separate Development Control Plans which are approved by the NCA to guide development in association with the requirements of Territory Plan.

As this National Land site (subject to redevelopment) is located outside of a Designated Area, the proposal is to conform with the DCP and Concept Plan prepared for the site. 

For more information regarding Special Requirements of the Plan, please refer to the link below.

Stage 1 development comprises the construction of building precincts 1, 2, 3, and 4, common areas, civil and landscape works.  Precinct 5 is not included as part of this application.
The works included in the application are broadly consistent with the NCA’s endorsed Concept Plan.  Minor departures from the concept plan include:

  • Increasing the dwelling quantity from 241 to 244 dwellings.  This change has been redesigned internally on the ground floor. The bulk and scale of the buildings remain unaltered.   
  • Basement redesign.
  • Landscape changes post Design Review Panel feedback.
  • Slight change in the location of the waste collection point.

The plans and supporting information can be viewed on the NCA’s website.  The NCA welcomes community feedback on this application by close of business Tuesday 21 April 2020.

Submissions can be made via email to worksapproval@nca.gov.au or sent to GPO Box 373 Canberra ACT 2600. Please contact the NCA for further information on 02 6271 2888.
