ACT: New planning rules make active travel easier

Many new buildings in the ACT and those undergoing major refurbishment will soon be required to provide end-of-trip facilities such as showers, changerooms, lockers and bicycle parking. ACT Minister for Planning and Land Management Mick Gentleman said active travel is an important part of the ACT Government's plans to improve the liveability and sustainability of our city. 'From planning to infrastructure, we're working hard to make it as easy as possible for Canberrans to ride, run, scoot or walk to or from work, or enjoy some exercise on their lunchbreaks,' Minister Gentleman said. 'This Territory Plan variation, called the End-of-Trip Facilities General Code, has been in the works for some time.'

In her capacity as the Victorian Minister under the Environmental Effect Statement Act, Minister Lily D'Ambrosio's assessment endorsed the inquiry's recommendations and found the environmental effects of the project acceptable.
