Areas of National Capital Significance

The elements that contribute to the national capital significance of the ACT will be preserved. These are the Central National Area, the landscape setting including the National Capital Open Space System, major approach routes (along the Barton Highway, Federal Highway, Majura Highway and Monaro Highway) and the roads connecting them to the Central National Area.

SHORT TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Proceed with a Central Canberra Implementation Program with the National Capital Authority and others.

MEDIUM TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Working with the National Capital Authority, limit any undesirable effects of growth on key elements of the national capital and of Walter Burley Griffin’s plan, including reference to the recommendations of the Griffin Legacy project.
  • Create a clear sense of arrival into the Territory from major approach routes, by establishing clear entry statements and protecting the approach routes from inappropriate ad hoc development by providing sufficient development opportunities in more appropriate locations.
