The purpose of Amendment 59 is to set out a framework of land uses and planning and urban design policies to guide future development of the City Hill Precinct ensuring it takes its place as the symbolic and geographical centre of Canberra Central.
City Hill Precinct is central to the implementation of The Griffin Legacy. The precinct should take its rightful place as the municipal heart of Canberra Central. City Hill Precinct will be reclaimed as Griffin’s symbolic and geographical centre for Civic – a corner completing the National Triangle as a gateway to the Central National Area and a hub connecting significant main avenues and vistas.
Amendment 59 was approved by the Minister for Local Government, Territories and Roads on 30 November 2006.
