December 2009

COAG agreed to 9 criteria and objective:

To ensure Australian cities are globally competitive, productive, sustainable, liveable and socially inclusive and are well placed to meet future challenges and growth.

Criteria for Capital City Strategic Planning Systems


  • Capital city strategic planning systems should:

  • 1. be integrated

  • 2. provide for a consistent hierarchy of future oriented and publicly available plans

  • 3. provide for nationally-significant economic infrastructure (both new and upgrade of existing)

  • 4. address nationally-significant policy issues

  • 5. consider and strengthen the networks between capital cities and major regional centres, and other important domestic and international connections;

  • 6. provide for planned, sequenced and evidence-based land release and an appropriate balance of infill and greenfields development;

  • 7. clearly identify priorities for investment and policy effort by governments, and provide an effective framework for private sector investment and innovation;

  • 8. encourage world-class urban design and architecture; and

  • 9. provide effective implementation arrangements and supporting mechanisms.

Review of Capital City Strategic Planning Systems

  • 4. nationally-significant policy issues:

  • population growth and demographic change,

  • productivity and global competitiveness,

  • climate change mitigation and adaptation,

  • efficient development and use of existing and new infrastructure and other public assets,

  • connectivity of people to jobs and businesses to markets,

  • development of major urban corridors,

  • social inclusion,

  • health, liveability, and community wellbeing,

  • housing affordability, and

  • matters of national environmental significance;

  • be integrated:

    • a. across functions, including land- use and transport planning, economic and infrastructure development, environmental assessment and urban development, and

    • b. across government agencies;

  • provide for a consistent hierarchy of future oriented and publicly available plans:

    • a. long term integrated strategic plans,

    • b. medium term prioritised infrastructure and land-use plans, and

    • c. near term prioritised infrastructure project pipeline backed by appropriately detailed project plans;

  • 3. provide for nationally-significant economic infrastructure (both new and upgrade of existing) including:

    • a. transport corridors,

    • b. international gateways,

    • c. intermodal connections,

    • d. major communications and utilities infrastructure, and

    • e. reservation of appropriate lands to support future expansion;

5. consider and strengthen the networks between capital cities and major regional centres, and other important domestic and international connections;
