Potential Early Border Expansion


Plans to expand the A.C.T.’s border could happen sooner, rather than later.

Land constraints have forced officials to consider whether development of the land has to be brought forward.

Chief Minister Andrew Barr and NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet have discussed the border move in Canberra’s north on the sidelines of recent national cabinet meetings.

Under the plan, The territory’s border would be expanded in the north-west of the A.C.T. to incorporate the Parkwood land which is in NSW and is part of the Yass Valley Council.

Parkwood will form part of the ACT government’s joint venture Ginninderry development, in west Belconnen by 2032 but there are moved to bring forward the expansion date.

There is also a push for the ACT to build a water pipeline to Murrumbateman to offset any lost rates revenue for the Yass Valley Council.
