Public submissions are being considered

Omnibus Draft Territory Plan Variation

The ACT Government has prepared an ‘Omnibus’ Draft Territory Plan Variation that proposes changing zoning and development opportunities for 7 sites across Canberra. These planning changes will pave the way for appropriate redevelopment on each of the 7 sites in the future.

The omnibus draft variation supports the Government’s land release program and the revitalisation of the public housing portfolio consistent with the Public Housing Asset Management Strategy 2012–2017. It also builds on the ACT Planning Strategy, which aims to create a more compact and efficient city that offers employment opportunities, which is an important part of the ACT Government’s initiatives to stimulate the ACT economy.

The omnibus variation allows the community to gain an appreciation of the overall issues that underpin the changes to the Territory Plan. However, each individual site is contained in a stand- alone draft variation.

The draft variation will go through the usual Territory Plan amendment process, with the Legislative Assembly making the ultimate decision on each site. No development will occur on a site until the onmibus variation is finalised and subsequent development applications approved.

A map showing the location of each site is available here (1.8 MB)

There has been consultation during the preparation of the draft variations. The results of that consultation are available here: Community engagement outcomes report (826.5 KB)
