Land Release

Each year the ACT Government prepares a four-year Indicative Land Release Program (the Program) to accompany the Territory Budget. The Program sets out the Government’s intended land releases of residential, mixed use, commercial, industrial, and community and non-urban land.

The Program is designed to align and support the Government’s strategic priorities. The Program also enables Government to deliver on a range of policy initiatives including those related to land development, housing affordability, public housing renewal, suburban sustainability, and to seek and promote international investment opportunities in the ACT land market.

Objectives of the Indicative Land Release Program

Land release contributes to the financial, social and environmental objectives of the Territory by seeking to:

  • Stimulate urban renewal by activating key gateways to the city and commercial centres;
  • Facilitate housing diversity and deliver affordable housing choices;
  • Maintain an appropriate inventory of land in the planning and land development pipeline for future release;
  • Meet the demand for land in the Territory across all sectors and support investment in the Territory economy;
  • Support the operation of a competitive land development and construction industry; and
  • Achieve satisfactory returns to the Government from the sale of unleased land and its surplus property assets.

The Indicative Land Release Program for 2017-18 to 2020-21 was released on 6 June 2017 (along with the ACT Government’s Annual Budget). The links below provide a detailed overview of the current program as well as an overall four-year map and individual maps by year.
