The ACT Government’s Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate’s (EPSDD) ACT Planning System Review and Reform Project is a major piece of work that has been underway since 2018 to transform the ACT Planning System. This is an incredibly important piece of work given the acknowledged problems with the current planning system (eg. Dated system forces planning authority to approve imperfect developments, admits Chief Planner).

The GCC strongly encourages residents to visit the ACT Planning System Review and Reform Project website and at least look at the Overview.

One of the key proposed improvements is a new level of strategic planning in the system – District Planning – which is intended to “improve the line of sight from the Planning Strategy to the Territory Plan”.

A series of workshops across Canberra on the topic of district planning have been announced and community members are invited to have a say on planning for the future of their district.

A wide range of community members is ecouraged to participate – either online or in person. Details are as follows:
