As a part of our plan to protect the local environment to ensure we have a sustainable future for all, a Canberra Liberals Government will establish a Green Space Guarantee to ensure that all Canberrans, including those in apartments and town centres, have access to green space.
The Canberra Liberals’ Green Space Guarantee will ensure our city remains the Bush Capital of Australia.
Under our plan Canberrans can be assured that we will guarantee green space within a 10-minute walk from home.
The Canberra Liberals will guarantee that open grassed areas are in place and maintained in each town centre and higher density areas.
Good urban design should include the provision of green spaces. Now that Canberra has thousands of apartments, the inclusion of properly maintained green space is essential.
Parks should not just be structured concrete areas, but also simple grassed areas for people to kick a ball or relax on a picnic rug.
Given the ACT Government has astronomically increased rates for apartment owners, residents deserve properly maintained green space.
This will deliver real and practical solutions to ensure Canberra is the best place to live, work and raise a family.
