Dear Dr Watson

Thank you for your letter of 30 September 2015 about the need for draft variation 351 to be referred to the Assembly's Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory & Municipal Services for inquiry.

I wrote to the Minister for Planning on 13 August 2015 urging such a referral and Mr Rattenbury, as then acting Minister, responded in September 2015. Copies of the two letters are attached for information.

New Committee member

First of all welcome to Luis Teran. Luis has volunteered to join the committee and he was formally accepted at our last meeting.

Prior to this we had our AGM and a truly wonderful presentation from Barry Virtue. Unfortunately you had to be there to hear. So if you get another chance I would certainly encourage you to go and listen to Barry.
