PMS 401 PMS Cool Grey 11 PMS 173 Northern Territory Planning Commission | Annual Report 201314 12 These are iconic sites that command a development of high quality, significance and something that is special to the community. Previous consultation highlighted the strong values and emotional ties the community has with this land, including Larrakia cultural ties, commemoration of the Kahlin Compound, the history of the Old Hospital and the Myilly Point Heritage Precinct. The Planning Commission was requested by the Minister to provide options on possible development and community consultation on these sites. Key elements included: - an expanded heritage precinct - large areas for community space at Flagstaff Park, Myilly Point and the Old Hospital Site - residential development - the potential for an iconic public facility. The Commission highlighted important aspects in redeveloping these sites, such as engaging with key stakeholders and the community, and promoting innovative and creative design concepts. After considering the draft conceptual plan, the Minister asked the Planning Commission to seek community feedback. Extensive community consultation occurred between 1 May and 11 June 2014. Further details on the community consultation can be found at page 22. The Planning Commission will provide a proposed conceptual plan to the Minister in August 2014.
