A new Territory Plan

The new Territory Plan will deliver an ‘outcomes-focussed’ planning system. It is centred on quality, results and performance rather than just compliance with prescribed technical rules. It places greater importance on how developments perform in their setting to achieve wellbeing, social, environmental, cultural and other priority outcomes.

The new Territory Plan, and more information on the new system, can be found on the ACT Government's Planning website.

The easier-to-use and outcomes-focussed Territory Plan will provide greater flexibility in the way developments can be designed and allow greater emphasis on improving design quality and built outcomes for all Canberrans.

During the consultation on the draft district strategies and draft Territory Plan, the community had the opportunity to ask questions to our planners. You can find these on the Ask a Question page.

You can now take a high-level look at what we heard during consultation in the Listening Report. A more detailed look and the government's response is found in the consultation report.
