    Abstract

    Statutory planning, in the context of long term sustainability of cities and regions, is an increasingly significant issue. This study provides an initial snapshot into the processes for identifying gaps in the statutory frameworks in the ACT that inhibit the ability of the Territory to ensure positive adaptive process and capacity.
    More significantly, the study draws on a fairly limited data set due to the ‘planning pipeline’ but engages in a substantial and contextualised analysis of current statutory frameworks within the ACT in identifying areas for improvement. It includes observations of current processes and practices and, where possible, the impacts of those processes and practices on the long term climate adaptation plan for the Territory.
    This study identifies areas that can be immediately addressed and other areas that require a longer term vision for the ACT community
