The purpose of Amendment 56 is to set out the Griffin Legacy - Principles and Policies to form a basis for making planning and urban design decisions for the Central National Area (CNA), its landscape setting and approaches.
The Griffin Legacy is a blueprint for Canberra and the Territory. It represents a renewed vision to unlock the Central National Area, its landscape setting and approaches. The Griffin Legacy directs future public and private investment in core areas of the capital where opportunities are created for vibrant, mixed use precincts alongside cultural institutions, government buildings and major national attractions. It restores the intended urbanity and vitality of the original Griffin vision for Canberra as a cosmopolitan lakeside city.
Amendment 56 was approved by the Minister for Local Government, Territories and Roads on 30 November 2006.
