More services for suburbs


A growing city means more demand for city services. This Budget delivers tidier suburbs and more public spaces for Canberrans to enjoy.

The 2018 Budget will see a step up in city services, delivering more trees and parks, playgrounds and public spaces Canberrans can continue to be proud of. We are maintaining our local ovals and investing in the renewal of our town centres to create livelier and more active public spaces.
