Amendment of the National Capital Plan

Draft Amendment 81

Removal of Outdated and Unnecessary Policy Material


Draft Amendment 81 – Removal of Outdated and Unnecessary Policy Material (DA81) proposes to remove redundant and out-of-date material from the National Capital Plan (the Plan). This is being done to increase the clarity of the Plan. These changes will improve the transparency of future changes that may occur as part of a broader review process.

The material proposed to be removed from the Plan is that which:

  • is out-of-date.
  • is of relevance to the Plan but could more appropriately form part of a supporting document (such as background material identifying the matters taken into consideration when formulating Plan policy content).
  • is not necessary to the successful implementation of the Plan.

DA81 of the Plan has been prepared in accordance with sections 15(1) and 23 of the Australian Capital Territory (Planning and Land Management) Act 1988 and is now available for public inspection and comment.

The National Capital Authority (NCA) will be holding a series of small group public information sessions on DA81. The NCA requests that interested parties RSVP to attend a session by registering at www.nationalcapital.gov.au/rsvp or phoning 02 6271 2888.

The NCA invites interested people and organisations to provide written comments on DA81 by close of business 21 March 2013 to:
