Glossodia Community Reference Group for the Jacaranda Ponds Development

Council is establishing a Glossodia Community Reference Group to receive updates on the status of the proposed Jacaranda Ponds Development on behalf of the community and to be an advisory group to Council for this development.

In summary the Jacaranda Ponds development will involve:

• Approximately 580 lots for large lot residential and residential development
• Retention of two large dams
• A new public open space area surrounding the largest dam
• Riparian planting, watercourse rehabilitation and ecological corridors
• Over $23 million of infrastructure improvements (including roads and community facilities)

The reference group’s purpose is consultative only, and will provide advice/comment to Council and the developer in relation to the proposed development. The working group will operate from the date of appointment up to the end of the public exhibition period when the first development application (DA) for the site is received.
