Last Minute Update: Unfortunately Ben Ponton is no longer able to attend this event. Instead we look forward to being joined by Acting Deputy Director-General Geoffrey Rutledge.
Environment, planning and sustainable development issues in the ACT
Environment Exchange events are held monthly to provide for informed, in-depth discussions on environmental issues in the region. Lunch, tea, coffee and cake is provided while networking with guests. Presentations are followed by questions from and discussion with the audience.
Do you have any questions on the ACT Government's work on environment, planning and sustainable development issues? Geoffrey might not have answers you like, but his Directorate touches on many of the issues that matter to us in Canberra.
These could be example questions or you could send in your own questions or come along:
- Why doesn't the Government straight out reject some planning proposals?
- How do you balance environmental protection while allowing environmentally-destructive developments?
- Why do you still require gas to be installed in new suburbs when consumers have stopped installing gas appliances?
Ben Ponton, Director General EPSDD, is now unavailable to attend this event. We will be joined instead by Acting Deputy Director-General Geoffrey Rutledge (pictured).
Enjoy a lunch, tea and coffee while networking and questions from, and discussion with, the audience.
