Phase 1 engagement outcomes
The Suburban Land Agency completed the first phase of community and stakeholder engagement (Discover) in December 2020. You can read the full report and see at a glance what we heard from community at these links here:
Outcomes from the first phase of engagement were used to inform the draft vision and themes for the second phase of engagement - the co-design of the Place Design Brief for the land release sites.
Specific engagement with Ngunnawal Traditional Owners and stakeholders was undertaken with the assistance of a specialist consultant. SLA is committed to undertaking a meaningful engagement with the Ngunnawal Traditional Owners and stakeholders and was guided by them to ensure their knowledge captured the unique social, spiritual, and historical connection to place as part of the engagement, land release and development process.

As a result of the first stage of engagement, a draft vision statement - a 'Place Proposition' - and four draft place themes for the renewal precincts were developed with the aim of co-designing further specific place objectives and opportunities for the precincts with the community so they can guide future development. The draft Place Proposition and draft place themes were confirmed during the co-design engagement phase.
“Redevelopment of the land release sites in the Belconnen Town Centre will activate and humanise the urban area with local experiences, moments of beauty, intimate and green places, opportunity for play and walkable connections.”
The following place themes support the realisation of the Place Proposition. They describe what place character needs to be preserved or enhanced as part of the development of the land release sites in the Belconnen Town Centre to achieve the place proposition.
A fine-grained network of walkable connections throughout, around and between the land release sites.
A network of green and lively open spaces.
Develop the land release sites in such a way that they give people more reasons to visit and live in Belconnen.
Feel like a local.
