  • Tugun Community Against GCCC Draft City Plan Increased Development Heights Proposed for Tugun Area
    CAMPAIGN UPDATE: “Due to overwhelming community concern" the proposed 2015 City Plan planning heights of 24mtrs (8 storey height equivalent) for the Tugun Village Centre have been reverted back to the current 2003 planning scheme building heights of 2 and 3 storeys. Council also resolved to undertake a character study of the Tugun Village area to assist in defining local characteristics and amenity. This study will be used to inform decisions regarding preservation of the character of the Tugun Village and to guide future planning decisions. The research phase of the Character study began in early April. Thank you for your support in this community action! Its success reflects our community’s passion for Tugun and our desire to preserve its character and pursue quality planning and development outcomes for our suburb.

The community has made it their mission to build awareness on the harms of nuclear waste and have set an important precedent to fight any future plans to nominate new sites on the Muckaty Land Trust. In their own words, "Muckaty will be nuclear free!"
