The City Renewal Authority has developed the City Precinct Renewal Program as a foundation for their work.  Implementation of the program will ensure the renewal of the precinct results in great places that are well positioned to thrive in a national and global setting.

The City Precinct Renewal Program is informed by existing precinct strategies and plans, and further distils these into a detailed plan of action with a 30-year delivery horizon. It outlines the current demographic and development context and sets clear goals with precinct-wide targets based on the government’s policies.

The program will allow the Government to consider the bigger renewal picture as they determine the timing and scope of future projects.   It should be seen as a dynamic suite of documents that will be updated as priority projects evolve, or as the need arises to adapt and consider emerging trends and priorities.

The program will also link to the ACT Government’s broader infrastructure plan to ensure initiatives in the City Renewal Precinct support the wider delivery of inclusive infrastructure and services across Canberra as a whole.
