active_livingThe ACT Government has released for public comment draft variation number 348 (DV348), to embed the active living principles into the Territory Plan.

Active living is a way of life that integrates physical activity into daily routines. Whether it is walking, riding a bike, playing in the park, walking the dog or taking the stairs, building incidental physical activity into their day will help Canberrans meet the National Physical Activity Guidelines on a daily basis.

Your comments on DV348 can be made up till 10 February 2017. To view DV348, or to make a comment please visit the ACT Government Your Say website.

stromlo_pool2The ACT Government committed $33m as part of the 2016-2017 budget for a new 50m pool at Stromlo Forest Park.

The government will soon invite tenders for the design and construction of the Stromlo Pool.

Design will allow for future expansion so the facility can grow over time as part of a unique sporting destination, Stromlo Forest Park.

Active Canberra wants to know what your priorities are for additional facilities and services so this can be considered during the design process. Have you say on Stromlo Pool.
