How you had YourSay

The Pre-Development Application (DA) consultation has now closed. The Pre-DA consultation closed on Wednesday, 24 February after a 10 week consultation period and feedback received is now being worked through by the design team.

There will be another opportunity to provide feedback when the Development Application is made available at

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

There were several ways for you to join the conversation. You could:

  • leave a comment on the draft plans
  • participate in a survey informing the design of the new public and green spaces at Canberra Hospital
  • Attend an information session or visit a pop up stall

  • 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
