ACT Government gives the green light to West Belconnen
ACT Minister for Planning Mick Gentleman officially introduced today, Variation (351) to the Territory Plan. This comes off the back of the federal government’s approval of an amendment to the National Capital Plan in May this year. This means that the ACT area of land immediately west of the suburbs of Holt and Macgregor is now rezoned for urban development.
This is welcome news for the project team who are committed to developing a community that provides diverse, affordable, and inclusive places to live, work and play.
Mr Gentleman said about 6500 dwellings, including retail and community infrastructure, would be developed alongside a 360-hectare nature reserve along the Murrumbidgee River.
