Frank Fenner Foundation Submission to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Government Housing Choices Engagement Project, providing feedback on the Housing Choices Discussion paper, November 2017
By international standards, the city of Canberra and the ACT more broadly, are examples of mostly well planned development. The initial Garden City concept understandably has changed over time; although there has been much well-considered planning and implementation, there has been some development which is not well supported by many citizens and apparently out of step with the initial vision.It is important to recognise that Canberra has some of the most far-sighted strategies for the future, including 100% electricity obtained from renewable sources, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the encouragement of innovative design and businesses, a longer term waste management goal and, generally, maintenance of a verdant and healthy local environment.
