Share your views on the Draft Framework that will set the overarching principles to guide future development and urban renewal initiatives along the Northbourne Avenue corridor into the city centre

The National Capital Authority (NCA) together with the ACT Government have developed the City and Gateway Draft Urban Design Framework (the Draft Framework) to optimise the benefits from urban renewal by prioritising people and how they interact and move about the city.

We would like to hear your views on the Draft Framework and if the urban renewal vision, principles and directions reflect what has been discussed during Stage 1 community engagement.

Getting this overarching Draft Framework right is important, as it coordinates and informs several implementation initiatives through future changes to the dual planning controls of the National Capital Plan (managed by the NCA) and the Territory Plan (managed by the ACT Government), and any infrastructure upgrades throughout the city and gateway corridor. There will be further opportunities to have your say on proposed changes to planning controls and infrastructure project once the Draft Framework is finalised.
