ACT Planning System Review and Reform Process
– Covers all aspects of Canberra’s Planning, Development and Land Use System
– Will dictate what Canberra will look like in the future
– Has major implications for all suburban built environment and green spaces, including the block next to you
The new planning system is moving from the rules based one we have at the moment to a discretionary, “outcomes based” one.
It is not just about new suburbs or major developments, it is what will or will not be acceptable at a suburban building block level.
The government has produced a number or booklets for the community https://www.planning.act.gov.au/planning-our-city/act-planning-system-review-and-reform
We encourage you to be aware of what is being considered and how it might impact you and your suburb.
