Civic and existing centres will
be the focus of employment growth, with existing corridors of employment
reinforced by clustering at nodes along the corridors (additional
district activity nodes will be located in the Molonglo Valley
and the Kowen Plateau as these areas develop).
SHORT TERM IMPLEMENTATION
- Release sufficient land in Civic to meet
demand for office space.
- Retail moratorium on town centres removed.
- Provide incentives
for development in Civic through the planning approvals process
(for example, remove the requirement for preliminary assessments
if proposals are consistent with the land use policy).
- Amend the National Capital Plan to allow
a greater mix of uses in the Central National Area.
- Develop an investment strategy
to ensure cost effective and efficient provision of infrastructure,
including ICT infrastructure, to support the growth of Canberra.
- Participation in the preparation
of the Sydney-Canberra Corridor Strategy to ensure future
directions for employment growth are reflected within planning
for surrounding NSW.
