CANBERRA RATES WELL IN CAPITAL CITY PLANNING

    An ACT Government Media Release

    Simon Corbell MLA, April 2, 2012

    CANBERRA RATES WELL IN CAPITAL CITY PLANNING

    Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Simon Corbell, has welcomed the COAG Reform Council's Review of Capital Cities Strategic Planning Systems which rated the ACT as one of the strongest capital city strategic planning systems in Australia.

    The COAG Reform Council's Review, released today by the COAG Reform Council, rated Canberra as fully or largely consistent with seven of the nine criteria: capital city networks, planning for future growth, urban design and architecture, integration, nationally significant infrastructure and policy issues, and its planning hierarchy.

    "This is an excellent result for Canberra and highlights the strengths in Canberra's strategic planning system. It reflects targeted improvements to strategic decision making and budgeting processes in the ACT that are have been implemented over the past twelve months and ongoing reforms. It also gives us some clear insights in where we can continue to improve," Mr Corbell said.

    "The report puts Canberra at the forefront of capital city planning in Australia and I would like the ACT to remain there."

    The CRC pointed to ACT's Canberra 2030: Time to Talk as an example of best-practice community engagement.

    The COAG Reform Council has noted a range of existing and future work to consolidate the strengths of the ACT's planning system and improve the ACT's alignment with the criteria over time. The ACT Government is committed to a program of work that will continuously improve our strategic planning systems.

    "All Australian capital cities have something to learn from this assessment, which will be discussed at the next COAG meeting," Mr Corbell said.

    The report is in response to the COAG objective to reform capital city strategic planning, to ensure Australian cities are globally competitive, productive, sustainable, liveable and socially inclusive and are well placed to meet future challenges and growth. The criteria were set by COAG with each jurisdiction being independently assessed by the COAG Reform Council.
