On Tuesday the ACT Government released the draft Territory Plan, District Strategies and Technical Specifications for comment.
Submissions can be made by 14 February 2023.
The Government claim that the new Territory Plan will deliver an ‘outcomes-focussed’ planning system. An outcomes focus means the new Territory Plan is centred on quality, results and performance rather than just compliance with prescribed technical rules. It places greater importance on how developments perform in their setting to achieve wellbeing, social, environmental, cultural and other priority outcomes.
The key policy changes in the draft Territory Plan are outlined in the Draft Territory Plan Supporting Report.
More information, including a full copy of all the draft Territory Plan documents, can be found on the draft new Territory Plan webpage.
Information about Industry Information Sessions will be released shortly.
We encourage any members with comments on the draft Territory Plan to share them with the MBA (via email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to help inform our submission.
