DV358 - Changes to Wright Precinct Map and Code

Draft Territory Plan Variation 358 (DV358) proposes to amend the Wright precinct map and code to prohibit residential uses (supportive housing, residential care accommodation and retirement village) on block 3 section 29 Wright (the subject site, currently registered as block 3). The subject site is Community Facility Zoned land. The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce (Taskforce) has identified part of section 29 Wright (currently registered as block 2) for public housing and the remainder of section 29 Wright (block 3) is on the ACT Government’s Indicative Land Release Program for release in 2018-19.

Following extensive community consultation and a Community Needs Assessment, the ACT Government is proposing to restrict the future use of the subject site to community purposes only. Any residential purposes (residential care, retirement villages and supportive housing) will be prohibited on the site confirming the land is to be used for community purposes only.

DV358 has been recommended to the Minister for Planning for determination.
