Media Release

18 September 2013

The National Capital Authority (NCA) invites public comment on a draft Development Control Plan (DCP) to guide future development at the Snowy Hydro SouthCare site in Hume.

The NCA has received a request from Cox Architecture to amend the current DCP (171/00/0003) for Part Block 16 Section 18 Hume.

The draft DCP has been prepared within the framework of the National Capital Plan and the Territory Plan.

An advertisement is in The Canberra Times today, inviting public comment.

The draft DCP can be downloaded at www.nationalcapital.gov.au/haveyoursay, or viewed at the NCA reception.

Written comments will be received until 5pm AEDST, Friday 1 November 2013.
