44th Parliament Review of the National Capital Authority: Biannual Public Briefings

The Committee is empowered to inquire into the National Capital Authority (NCA) through its Resolution of Appointment which provides for the Annual Reports of the NCA to stand referred to the Committee for any inquiry the Committee may resolve to adopt. The committee is committed to holding a public hearing with the NCA every six months to canvass matters of interest.

The NCA manages the Commonwealth’s interest in the planning and development of Canberra and the Territory by administering the National Capital Plan and areas designated as National Lands.

The hearings are a means of raising the level of transparency and parliamentary accountability applying to the NCA.
