The establishment of the City Renewal Authority is a reflection of Canberra’s maturity as it continues to evolve from its roots as the seat of Federal Parliament, to a diverse and vibrant city with a distinctive urban identity. The authority will lead design-led, people-focused urban renewal in the designated City Renewal Precinct and encourage and promote social and environmental sustainability. To achieve this the authority will forge strong and constructive partnerships with the community, industry and all stakeholders to create a place for people to live, explore and enjoy.
The authority will be a champion of excellence. It will work with the community, business and government to deliver new buildings and places within the precinct that are of exemplary design quality, excite interest and participation and attract new investment.
It will help to create contemporary, lively spaces that will generate creativity, innovation and a diversity of possibilities. The precinct will stand the test of time and be a place that Canberrans will be proud of and visitors will remember.
With our many partners, we will create new public buildings, homes, offices and businesses, parks and landscapes.
