Public meeting in Canberra, Thursday, 29 April, 6.30 pm is last chance to have your say on the ‘early works’ at the War Memorial

National Capital Authority consultation closes 30 April on the misleadingly named ‘early works’ for the $498m War Memorial project: demolition of Anzac Hall; massive excavation on the south side of the building; destruction of 116 trees. If these ‘early works’ are approved, they are irreversible and further approval processes for the rest of the project are effectively redundant.

The NCA needs to hear from Canberrans and the last chance to make this happen is at a public meeting at the Griffin Centre, Canberra, 6.30 pm, Thursday, 29 April. Details here including Eventbrite sign up. Free event.

Supported by ACT Greens, Heritage Guardians, Honest History, Medical Association for Prevention of War (ACT Branch).
