NOTICE: As part of the ACT’s new planning system, Canberra now has a new interim Territory Plan, which was implemented on 27th November 2023. The interim Territory Plan includes some key changes to planning controls, such as:

  • Changes to side setback controls for large blocks
  • Implementation of Living Infrastructure rules on all blocks, including open space, planting area and tree canopy requirements.  
  • Changes to the controls for Site Coverage on all blocks.
  • Changes to the solar building envelope requirements for large blocks.

Your designer/builder should be aware of these changes when designing your new home.
