Last week Capital Football received communication from the ACT Government in regards to an opportunity for the Canberra community to engage in small group workshops in relation to shaping the future of Canberra’s planning system. From a facility planning perspective, Capital Football will provide input and we invite clubs to also contribute.
The workshops are being held in eight urban districts across Canberra, inviting participants to have input into what’s important about their district, as the ACT Government allow for the distinctive character of each district to be reflected in the planning system.
Capital Football will provide a whole of sport plan which will outline the future needs of the football community, recognising areas of growth within the sport. We want, however, to ensure that each club also has opportunity and engage with ACT Government and voice their views on their specific needs and requirements.
More information on the ACT Government workshops and project scope is available here. We acknowledge that the first of the workshops are this week and are now closed; however, clubs in these regions can contact ACT Government and seek to provide a written submission given the short timeframe.
Capital Football staff will be attending a selection of these workshops. If clubs intend on attending a workshop, please let Kelly Stirton know.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Stirton, Head of Game Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 6260 4000
