The NCA has an obligation under the Australian Capital Territory (Planning and Land Management) Act 1988 (the Act) to keep the Plan under constant review and to propose amendments to it when necessary. As part of this continual review process the NCA recognises that planning polices need to reflect wider Australian Government policy (for example, national policy on the planning and urban design of our cities). The NCA reviews planning polices to ensure the National interest in the ACT and development assessment requirements are clearly, accurately and appropriately expressed through various planning instruments and documents, such as:
There are currently no policy review projects.
We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as traditional custodians of the ACT and recognise any other people or families with connection to the lands of the ACT and region.
We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.
