Canberrans can now have their voices heard on the proposed design for the Acton Waterfront.
The National Capital Authority’s (NCA) public consultation on the works approval application, which includes the construction of a temporary park and a permanent park, is open for comment.
The interim park will serve as the settlement ground for the reclaimed land, while the permanent park will contain play spaces, gardens, toilets, pavilions and event spaces.
Key features proposed for the new lakefront park include food and beverage facilities, cultural signage trails and shade structure.
Other proposed infrastructure includes Ngunnawal nature play, Ngunnawal artworks, native meadow planting, food kiosk, accessible and shared paths, emergency vehicles access routes, areas for events, and lighting and wayfinding.
The NCA will not be seeking feedback on the proposal to expand West Basin, project management or costs.
Feedback needs to be provided before 5 pm on Friday, 22 September.
An online ‘drop-in’ session will be held, which interested people will need to register for.
Other questions about Acton Waterfront or the works approval application can be directed to the City Renewal Authority on 6207 2879.
