Franklin Grasslands Environmental Offset Site

Draft Variation 366 (DV366) proposes to add a nature reserve overlay to the Territory Plan Map over Block 5 Section 47 Franklin, known as the ‘Franklin Grasslands’.

The site is required to offset the impacts on matters of national environmental significance protected under Commonwealth environment protection legislation due to the construction of roadworks for the proposed Canberra Brickworks redevelopment site in Yarralumla.  The Franklin Grasslands site is required to be legally protected and to remain an environmental conservation offset in perpetuity.

DV366 has been released for public comment from 8 November 2019 until 20 December 2019.
