Delivering developments

The Suburban Land Agency (SLA) is an ACT government organisation delivering residential, commercial and industrial developments across the Territory. We create great places where communities thrive.

Our teams work closely to buy and sell leases of land on behalf of the Territory, ensuring a mixture of public and private housing.

We aim to increase the supply of affordable and community housing, meet housing targets and create environmentally sustainable, buzzing communities.

How it all works

  1. We’re guided by placemaking and sustainable design practices us as we plan future communities.
  2. Residential buyers, builders and developers purchase land from us.
  3. We work closely with communities to build connected and thriving neighbourhoods.

We price land through a strict and transparent framework that helps to ensure greater access to affordable housing choices.

When it comes to releasing land for sale, we're guided by the ACT Government's Indicative Land Release Program(ILRP). This indicates the government’s planned land sales to meet the housing needs of our population.

Working with First Nations peoples

It is our collective responsibility to acknowledge that our work takes place on the ancestral lands of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Ngunnawal.

To meet this responsibility and create communities enriched with strong connections with Country, we engage in a range of ways with local elders and community leaders throughout the development of new suburbs.
