ACTPLA has released the Sustainable future workshop findings report for public comment.
The report contains key outcomes from a series of workshops held under the Sustainable future program. These workshops gathered together some of Australia’s leading thinkers, community members and government and industry representatives to draw out ideas on how to make our city and the ACT more sustainable, particularly in regard to future planning.
Those ideas are synthesised in the report, which has been released so people in the community can provide ACTPLA with their feedback.

Your feedback is important as it will help the ACT Government formulate over the course of next year, planning policies that will help achieve the government’s sustainability goals.
Sustainable future — is part of an ACT Government commitment to building resilience to climate change through both mitigation and adaptation measures.
This program will focus on reviewing planning policy and identifying strategies and measures that complement the ACT Government’s sustainability policy, People, Places and Prosperity and will assist in achieving targets set out in the action plan Weathering the Change.
The program recognises that the built environment, which includes transport, contributes more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions in the ACT.
