City and Gateway Urban Renewal Strategy

About the Urban Renewal Strategy

As our city grows and develops, nowhere is more important to plan for than the heart of our city, the city centre, and the prominent national gateway to our city, Northbourne Avenue. In response, the ACT Government is developing an urban renewal strategy for the City and Gateway Corridor. The urban renewal strategy will be an integrated and community supported vision for the corridor that will guide future development as community needs and market demands change over time. It will recognise the City and Gateway Corridor as a unique, vibrant and diverse part of Canberra that is well placed to accommodate growth while maintaining a strong sense of community.

The urban renewal strategy is a key implementation initiative of the City Plan, and is designed to capitalise on opportunities such as Capital Metro and City to the Lake. These projects will be a catalyst for redevelopment and investment, presenting the opportunity to transform and re-imagine the city. How these opportunities are harnessed will define the shape of our city, its identity and how liveable it is into the future.
