Purpose

Amendment 42 replaces the York Park and Environs Master Plan which was introduced as Appendix T.2 of the National Capital Plan in 1993. York Park is the prestigious office area in Barton/Forrest bounded by State Circle, Canberra Avenue, National Circuit and Kings Avenue, adjacent to Parliament House.

The revised Master Plan, aims to give a greater emphasis to securing high quality urban design outcomes especially in the public domain and reinforce the role of Windsor Walk as a central landscaped open space serving the office precinct. It also protects the York Park North Tree Plantation within an Environmental Protection Area Open Space Land Use Policy.
