Message from the Minister for Planning
I have great pleasure in presenting The
Canberra Spatial Plan. The release of The
Canberra Spatial Plan is the culmination of
the community working together for nearly two years to develop the key
strategic planning document which will guide development of our city
for the next 30 years.
The community involvement in the development of the
Spatial Plan began in April 2002 with the Government's publication
of the full and inclusive process to be undertaken. The involvement of
the community has been invaluable in ensuring that the output of this
process, this Spatial Plan responds to the needs and aspirations of Canberrans.
It has been an important time for establishing the
future vision for our city. Together we have developed a plan that will
help ensure prosperity and sustainability for us and for future residents.
The Canberra Spatial Plan will help enhance our world class and unique
city for future generations.
Thank you to all those who have participated in the
development of The Canberra Spatial Plan. This is a landmark document
which you have helped shape. Your contributions are not just to Canberra
today but to the future Canberra.
You have helped establish the framework for Canberra
in the 21st Century: a city like no other; planned with its people and
for future generations.
Simon Corbell MLA
