Time to Talk


ACT Planning Strategy

The consultation period for the ACT Planning Strategy has been extended. Consultation now closes 12 February 2012.

The ACT Government has released the draft ACT Planning Strategy for public comment. The draft Strategy has been developed following extensive community and stakeholder engagement, including Time to Talk Canberra 2030.

When final, the ACT Planning Strategy will guide Canberra’s development for the next 30 years and beyond, and is focussed on making a Canberra a compact, efficient city by building on its key strengths – its metropolitan structure, its position in the region and place as the ‘bush capital’.

Your feedback will help the ACT Government finalise the policy and implement its actions, to keep Canberra an attractive, liveable and sustainable place to live, work and play.
