Establishing a sense of place in Braddon and Dickson

Establishing a sense of place in Dickson and Braddon

28 March 2018

The City Renewal Authority will soon ask stakeholders within Dickson and Braddon to help shape the vision  for two of Canberra’s most rapidly changing precincts.

The Dickson group centre and Braddon’s retail and entertainment precinct are home to an increasing residential population through numerous urban renewal projects.

This growing residential population is accompanied by a changing culture and an increased demand for services. As a result, a place-making implementation plan will be designed for these important residential, commercial and entertainment precincts.

The implementation plan will identify tangible actions and projects that take into account community and stakeholder consultation as well as the numerous city plans and strategies that have already been developed for these areas.

Over the next month the authority will consult with place-making experts, local traders and the community to create and implement a place plan for each neighbourhood that is sustainable into the future.

The final product will improve the amenity of the area, resolve movement issues and provide a program of short, medium and long-term improvements.

Stay tuned for more information on how you can provide input into the plan.
