The ACT Government has released a new policy to allow “compact housing” down to as small as 150 square metres. ABC’s story is here.
The policy is here.
Of note is that this is NOT a draft policy. It has been released as an Interim Planning Policy pending release of the redrafted Territory Plan later this year. I believe this means that DAs lodged in accordance with it between now and then could be approved.
As a community representative on the Minister’s Territory Plan Reference Panel and at ACTPLA’s regular Planning and Development Forums, I’m interested in people’s thoughts on the policy and implementation.
