Are you interested in the future of the Acton Peninsula?

The National Capital Authority is inviting you to have your say about the Acton Peninsula Draft Structure Plan.

The draft structure Plan is designed to promote connectivity and blend the uses of the Peninsula to improve the public realm.

The draft plan has been developed in close collaboration between the NCA and the cultural and educational institutions on and around Acton Peninsula including; The Australian National University (ANU), the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), the National Museum of Australia (NMA), and the ACT Government.

NCA Chief Executive Malcolm Snow said that all the institutions had an exciting long-term vision for the peninsula which to be realised, needed a supporting urban design framework to ensure the proper development and management of the area.

“The draft plan seeks to address this by resolving a range of physical constraints and proposing new opportunities to co-ordinate the long-term development of the precinct,” Mr Snow said.

Community consultation will be open for six weeks and ends at midnight on Tuesday 13 June 2017.

Public information drop-in sessions with NCA planning staff will be held from 11am to 2pm on Thursday 18 May, Saturday 20 May and Tuesday 23 May at the National Museum of Australia.

The draft plan and information about how to provide feedback is available here on the NCA’s website at www.nationalcapital.gov.au.
