The Minister for Planning and Infrastructure Brad Hazzard (@BradHazzard) announced the terms of the 'short, sharp' review of Barangaroo on 26 May, 2011.

The review is anticipated to run for 8 weeks and will be undertaken by VicUrban Board Member Meredith Sussex (  and former Design Director in the office of the NSW Government Architect Shelley Penn AM ( .

The objective of the terms of reference is to review the project's compliance with the planning approval process, particularly:

The review is now open to public submissions until the 20 June, 2011. Submissions may be sent to or GPO Box 5341, Sydney, NSW 2001.

Given the daily conversations on social media sites, particularly Twitter and that both the BDA (@Barangaroo) and the most prominent action group (@Barangaroo_AG) are both on Twitter, a forward thinking review process may have included Twitter posts as public submissions. Given the large engagement in the project on Twitter, would it not be a great way of increasing public involvement in the process.
