Suburban Land Agency (SLA) is developing a Place Design Brief for Lawson, Section AD, Blocks (a) and (b) (the study area on the map below). 

Context plan map of Lawson


The 19,648m² site is surrounded by Baldwin Drive, Belconnen Way, Lake Ginninderra and the old naval base. Zoned CZ5 - Mixed-Use, development on the site will provide retail and non-retail commercial uses along with residential development. This could include shops, restaurants and community uses. For further information on zoning please go to:

The Place Design Brief will help us understand community aspirations for the site which can be considered as part of future development design. Forming part of tender documentation to be released by SLA next year, developers will be required to respond to the Place Design Brief.
