The Greens are standing up for a more sustainable Canberra. A Canberra fit for the 21st Century challenges of a growing population and changing climate.
As part of our vision for a sustainable city, we will work to:
- Protect and grow Canberra’s urban trees, waterways and greenspaces
- Build more energy efficient housing
- Expand our walking and cycling infrastructure
The Greens believe that our planning rules should be changed to provide incentives for better quality housing. To secure a sustainable future for our city, we need to build smaller houses and ensure room is left for trees and gardens to keep our urban areas cool.
