Project Update: Phase 1 Engagement Outcomes

We recently completed the first phase of public and stakeholder engagement (Discovery) and would like to thank everyone who contributed. 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 are being used to inform the draft vision and themes for the second phase of engagement - the co-design of the Place Design Brief for the Phillip Block 1, Section 7 Land Release Site.

Specific engagement with Ngunnawal Traditional Owners and stakeholders is being undertaken with the assistance of specialist consultant Bagariin. SLA is committed to undertaking a meaningful engagement with the Ngunnawal Traditional Owners and stakeholders and will be guided by them to ensure this project captures their knowledge and the unique social, spiritual, and historical connection to place as part of the engagement, land release and development process.

Emerging from our first phase of engagement, the following draft place themes describe what place character should be developed or enhanced as part of the development of the Phillip Block 1, Section 7 site.

Draft place themes

Theme 1

Bringing people together across different generations.

Theme 2

Showcasing the best of urban life.

Theme 3

Valuing and sharing the spirit of place.

We want to know what you think

We want to know your feedback on the draft place themes and if there is anything missing, that you think should be included.

To learn more about the themes and to give us your thoughts you can register to attend one of our in-person workshops or complete the online survey.


We are looking at

The 14,974m2 Phillip Block 1, Section 7 site is centrally sited between Matilda Street, Bowes Street and Callum Street in Woden Town Centre. Adjacent to the current bus interchange and future light rail, some people will know it as the ‘Matilda St Car Park.’

The Suburban Land Agency (SLA) is developing a Place Design Brief with community to define the opportunities particular to this site and to help create unique experiences and a strong sense of place. We want to hear what is important to you, what inspires and attracts you in public places and streets and to understand what you value about Woden town centre life. This will allow us to activate, create and connect public spaces within the site, identify opportunities for local partnerships and create safe environments to play, work and visit.

This Place Design Brief engagement builds on the 2015 Woden Town Centre Master Plan.
