Have your say on Tuggeranong's next-generation suburb


A new suburb could take shape between the Tuggeranong town centre and the Murrumbidgee River, breathing new life into the area and stimulating urban renewal.  The 190 ha area is considered some of the best land in Canberra, along the green swathes of the river corridor with views to the Brindabellas.

The ACT Government will be investigating this area further to determine its suitability for development, ensuring that any development protects the area’s high environmental and heritage values. People who make their homes there would be only minutes from central facilities, services, shops, an employment hub and public transport. The land is in a prime location, so residents living here would be no more than one and a half kilometres from the town centre. This development would also open the river corridor for more community recreation.

Have your say on this opportunity until 22 April 2016.

There’s been strong demand for new property in Tuggeranong with a positive reception to the new Southquay development. The Government wants to hear from local people about how they value the proposed development area, if it should be developed, and if so what they would like to see in the new suburb.
