We are committed to Open Government
The City Renewal Authority is committed to transparency in process and information in all that we do. We are committed to actively engaging with the community so that all interested citizens can participate in the governing process.
Opening up government, particularly on the internet, is an ongoing process that will be undertaken incrementally tempered by the need to protect citizens' privacy and security; always having regard to commercial confidentiality and copyright.

Statement of Intent 2018-19 (from Page 56 in the ACT Budget 2018-19, Budget Statements E)
As part of its Open Government strategy, the ACT Government is committed to:
Being an open government means the ACT Government values collaboration across government and with the community. Open government initiatives enhance democracy and place the community at the centre of the governance process.
In the spirit of open government and with the full support of the board, City Renewal Authority management will publish an overview of the outcomes of the authority’s board meetings as soon as practicable after each meeting. Matters which will not be included in the meeting outcomes are those of commercial or personal sensitivity and internal operational issues.
The Government Agencies (Land Acquisition Reporting) Act 2018 commenced operation on 1 January 2019. This Act removed the requirement of the former section 13 of the City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency Act 2017 for the Authority to independently report quarterly on its land acquisition activity. The Government Agencies (Land Acquisition Reporting) Act 2018 requires a quarterly consolidated report on all land acquisitions made by Government agencies. Reports are prepared and published by the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate and published at: https://www.planning.act.gov.au/topics/report-on-government-land-acquisitions
This policy sets out the official position on open data for the ACT Government.
