PMS 401 PMS Cool Grey 11 PMS 173 Northern Territory Planning Commission | Annual Report 201314 22 Case Study 3: Old Hospital Site and Flagstaff Park Due to the diverse nature of the sites and its rich history, some residents want to respect the heritage of the area and make it a peoples place, with parkland and strong commemorative elements. Others think this area is prime real estate that should be revitalised with a plan and quality development. The Commission carefully considered all feedback received during previous rounds of consultation and developed a draft conceptual plan that attempts to combine these elements to create a precinct that accords with the principles of the recent Darwin City Master Plan and respects the need for community spaces. The Planning Commission engaged a local firm, Michels Warren Munday, to engage with the community during the consultation period. Consultation commenced on 1 May 2014 and concluded on 11 June 2014. Doorknocks and letterdrops were conducted in the area surrounding the two sites. In addition, meetings with residents and stakeholders such as the Friends of Kahlin, National Trust and Historical Society of the NT have been held. An Open Day was held at Flagstaff Park on 10 May 2014 and was well attended, attracting around 130 people. The Open Day provided an opportunity for community members to learn and provide feedback on the draft concept plan. There has been strong interest in the Planning Commissions draft conceptual plan. In total, 233 stakeholders provided feedback, with 108 submissions received. The Planning Commission is compiling and reviewing the feedback from the community consultation. This feedback will inform the concept plan that the Commission will provide to the Minister in August 2014. Case Study 2: Berrimah North, and Knuckey and Ironstone Lagoons A Discussion Paper was released for public comment from 19 June to 23 August 2013. The paper explored scenarios for future land use and development of the area, taking into consideration the environmental sensitivity, its strategic location to the airport, and the capability of existing services infrastructure to support any future development. Two Land Use Forums were conducted on 8 August 2013. Over 55 residents and stakeholders attended to express their aspirations for future land use. The Commission also hosted an Information Open Day at Royal Darwin Show in July 2013, to listen to the community on strategic planning issues for the area. 60 written submissions were received, in which a diverse range of issues were raised. However there was a broad consensus on the environmental attributes of the Knuckey and Ironstone Lagoons area and the need for a considered approach to development. The issues raised by the community were presented in a Summary Report under three categories Community Values; Constraints and Opportunities; and Growth Scenarios. www.planningcommission.nt.gov.au COMMUNITY CONSULTATION MYILLY POINT The Northern Territory Planning Commission (NTPC) would like feedback on a new concept plan to redevelop two sites at Myilly Point: Kahlin Compound and Old Darwin Hospital Site Flagstaff Park The new concept plan incorporates previous feedback from the community and maintains two main parkland areas and three residential areas that will be linked in a combined master plan to create a Myilly Point destination precinct. The NTPC recognises the importance of a high quality development that captures the sites special values, premium location and cultural and historic connections. The NTPC has created a flexible concept plan for consultation and welcomes feedback from the community.
