The National Capital Authority consideration of the Australian War Memorial development was one of several processes that independently considered the project. The Public Works Committee also considered the need, scope, cost, purpose and value for money of the proposed works and the parliament agreed to the expediency motion to carry out the project in February 2021. Heritage aspects were assessed in accordance with the EPBC Act. Following this, the proposal was approved, with conditions, in December of last year. The NCA considered all issues raised and concluded that the proposal is not inconsistent with the National Capital Plan.
