In Progress


Thanks for your contribution

The YourSay component of the consultation has now closed.

The City Renewal Authority is charged with shaping the growth of the central parts of Canberra. We recognise that we all have a role in creating a city precinct that we can all enjoy.

Over 15 years, Canberrans have shared many views and ideas for how to enhance our city precinct. We have reviewed 23 previous consultation activities, which resulted in more than 32,000 pieces of community input. There were six common themes the community identified for the renewal of our city.

The six themes include:

  1. A city of people
  2. A creative city
  3. An active city
  4. A sustainable city
  5. A connected city
  6. A progressive city

We are starting to turn these ideas into actions and initiatives. Over the past four weeks we have asked the community to help that process by sharing their ideas.

Your views are being used to:

We are developing an action plan, guided by the six themes, to bring our collective vision for the city precinct to life.

Your views will help ensure that what we have heard over the past 15 years is still current and relevant. Your views will also ensure we have ideas we can take forward to develop the action plan.

We will then work with community groups, industry, representative organisations and other government agencies to identify, priorities and progress specific initiatives, programs and projects.
