Submission: The Draft ACT Planning Strategy

Publication date: 
February 2012

Good planning of a city has the potential to address the issues underlying social exclusion, and those which have an impact on the Social Determinants of Health - access to employment, services, education and community facilities; adequate transport; and affordable housing. It is for this reason ACTCOSS recommends the ACT Government keep in mind at all times during the planning, implementation and evaluation of the Strategy, the needs of people experiencing disadvantage.
