How to have YourSay

We invite the community to provide comments on all elements of the proposed building design.

There are several ways for you to join the conversation. You can download an information package, review a newsletter, attend an event, share your thoughts and ideas or leave us a comment.

Registrations will open in the new year for our drop in sessions where you can discuss and provide feedback to the project team in person.

We are looking at:

Canberra Hospital is expanding to include a new emergency, surgical and critical healthcare facility with more operating rooms, more treatment spaces and more intensive care beds.

We invite the community to provide comments on all elements of the proposed building design.

An information package of draft plans for the hospital is now available ahead of the formal development application and is open to public comment for 10 weeks, closing on Wednesday 24 February.

This package includes the following conceptual documentation for the community to provide feedback on:

  • A site plan (showing parking areas, access and egress, waste areas and communal open spaces)
  • A plain English statement explaining the proposal
  • Key design elements of the proposal
  • Indicative floor plans
  • Elevations
  • Shadow diagrams (demonstrating shadow impact)
  • Proposed materials and finishes
  • Perspective drawings and other visual images from a range of angles and scales
  • High level response to Territory Plan rules and criteria
  • Response against the relevant zone objectives

We will use your views to:

Feedback gathered during this period will help inform the formal development application for the delivery of the new emergency, surgical and critical healthcare building, due for lodgement in March 2021.

A post engagement ‘What We Heard’ report from the YourSay survey findings will be available to download in the YourSay document library.
