Amendment 12 incorporated the Russell Master Plan which details Conditions of Planning, Design and Development, and includes a new statement of Land Use Policy for Russell. The Amendment responds to proposals by the Department of Defence to redevelop parts of the Russell Office complex. These proposals provided an opportunity to reconsider the future planning of Russell in the context of its National Capital significance which derives from the key position it occupies at the incomplete corner of Walter Burley Griffin's national triangle.
