DV348 Active Living Principles

Draft Variation 348 Active Living Principles (DV348) incorporates the 'Active Living' policies identified in the  Minister for Planning and Land Management Statement of Planning Intent (2015) into the Territory Plan. In conjunction with the Heart Foundation (ACT), six active living principles have been developed for the ACT:

  • Connected places - providing connections between major uses and activity centres
  • Open space - valuing open spaces, parks and places
  • Mixed land use and density - encouraging diversity in activities, land uses and development densities
  • Safe and attractive places - ensuring places are safe and attractive to everyone using that place
  • Supportive infrastructure - providing supportive infrastructure that encourages regular physical activity Environments for all - ensuring places are inclusive and have equitable access by all Canberrans.

The above principals have been incorporated into the Territory Plan in a variety of locations, including the strategic directions, zone objectives, development codes (particularly Multi Unit Housing, Commercial Zones, Industrial Zones, Community Facility Zone, Parks and Recreation Zone and Estates Development Code, General Code (particularly Community and Recreation Facilities Location Guidelines General Code) and the Definitions (including two new terms). These changes seek to:

  • prioritise active travel
  • ensure accessibility of land uses by active travel
  • promote connectivity to surrounding active travel networks
  • support the development of attractive streets and public places; and
  • introduce the concept of minimum safe walking distances in local, group and town centres, along with bus stops, public parks and community facilities.

DV348 has been recommended to the Minister for determination.
