Project status: Open

We are introducing district strategies into the planning system, one for each of our districts. Each district strategy will capture the special character of that district and outline future planning directions.

The district strategies will help us manage growth and change while protecting the things we value. They will look at how we can increase housing (including affordable and social housing) and improve travel options, shopping centres, employment opportunities and green spaces. District strategies will help us deliver good outcomes for all Canberrans where they live, work, do business and play.

Have your say

Community engagement on the draft district strategies (and the draft Territory Plan) is open from 1 November 2022 to 14 February 2023. We understand that there is a lot of information to digest for each district. As such, we encourage you to take some time to read all of the information provided, in as much detail as you want.

In November and December 2022 we will be focussing on sharing information and answering any questions you may have. Then, in January and February 2023, we will shift our focus to listening and collecting feedback, with workshops and pop-ups right across Canberra. This way, you can provide feedback whenever it suit you - either straight away, or after attending a workshop to help you understand the key elements of the district strategies.
