Good travel connections

One of the goals of the Spatial Plan is to retain ease of movement and facilitate good travel connections. This goal responds to the very high value that Canberrans place on the ease within which they can get around the city. The location of future residential development, including new greenfields areas, redevelopment and urban renewal will minimise journey times and trip length. A closer relationship between jobs, services and homes will also enable more people to use walking and cycling as an alternative method of transport that supports a healthy lifestyle.
