A premium central location

Belconnen is going through a revitalisation with multiple new developments evolving the town centre into a walkable neighbourhood, leveraging amenity and locality –close to jobs, shops, recreation, and transit hubs.

The Lathlain Precinct sites are in a premium central location opposite Westfield Belconnen Shopping Centre -- an area undergoing transformation in line with the Belconnen Town Centre Place Design Brief (2021). The sites will in time, have connection through to Lathlain Street.

The Lathlain Street Precinct is marked as part of the Belconnen renewal process which will ultimately deliver a park, tree lined streets, slow traffic zones and alfresco dining and mixed-use development.

The design of the public works will commence this year (2024) and will be delivered through a community consultation process.

Place Design Brief

Prepared using individuals' insights and local knowledge, the Belconnen Town Centre Place Design Brief defines community expectations for the development with a focus on great urban experiences. The people of Belconnen recognise that investment must be made into the area, from streetscapes to public place amenity and the built environment.

Design and development of the sites within this Precinct will include more local experiences, more green places, more opportunity for play and walkable connections, and sustainable design. The Place Design Brief identifies how other precincts and sites improve connection to the Lake Ginninderra waterfront.
