Updated 1 November 2021

The health and safety of the community and our staff is the National Capital Authority’s (NCA) main concern as we continue to take action to mitigate the risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NCA continues to review operations on an on-going basis in line with advice from health officials and Government policies and guidelines. 

With further changes made by the ACT Government, to 1 November 2021, the following arrangements are now in place:

  • The NCA office situated in Parkes, Canberra, is open and operating at a reduced capacity. Our contractors and staff will continue to address health and safety matters and any immediate or emerging hazards. 
  • With many NCA Officers continuing to work from home, there are extended delays to the Works Approval process.
  • Pay parking operations remain the same in NCA managed car parks. The EasyPark app is in place to ensure contactless payment.
  • The National Capital Exhibition at Regatta Point is now open to visitors. Blundells Cottage in Kings Park will also reopen to the public from Saturday 6 November. Both sites will be operating in line with ACT Government guidelines.
  • Outdoor playgrounds are open in line with ACT Government guidelines. Please ensure physical distancing is maintained wherever practicable. The playgrounds include Boundless at Kings Park, the Castle Playground at Commonwealth Park and the Regatta Point Playground.
  • All maintenance and construction activity is being managed in line with ACT Government guidelines.

Please refer to this page for any further updates.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, we will continue to closely monitor and follow all advice from the ACT authorities.

During this time, if you have any routine queries to write to info@nca.gov.au, for any urgent maintenance issues or safety hazards please call our BGIS maintenance team on 1800 045 941.
