Draft Red Hill Integrated Plan: public comments before 31 December 2019

The full Draft red Hill Integrated Plan was released for public comment on 13/11/19 by the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD). Comments should be provided by 31 December 2019 to terrplan@act.gov.au

The draft plan considers four possible options for the context area and identifies a preferred option which includes the following recommendations (refer to the map in the attached document for further detail):

  • Retaining open space which adjoins and links to the Red Hill Nature Reserve, preserving the ecological values of the area.
  • Implementing buffers around the Federal Golf Course and associated development.
  • Managing the Red Hill Nature Reserve in line with the Plan of Management for the Canberra Nature Park and the National Capital Plan.
  • Identification of proposed upgrading to a number of roads and intersections to cater to the current traffic volume of the roads and prepare for future growth and capacity.
  • Retaining residential zones adjoining the Nature Reserve.
  • Expanding the Deakin Office Park (rezoning Deakin Section 66) to partly include further urban open space and commercial use.
  • Increasing housing choice particularly for the ageing population through the development of a retirement village, to be located in the southern portion of the Federal Golf Course with access via Kitchener Street
