Conservation in Reid

The Reid Housing Precinct was included on the Register of the National Estate on 21 October 1980 and is on the ACT Heritage Register. The intent of heritage listing is to retain and conserve the suburb’s intrinsic features:

  • for their ability to demonstrate historical values including ‘Garden City planning principles and architectural and landscape design from the initial period of urban development within Canberra
  • for the aesthetic unity of the streetscapes arising from the harmonious integration of low-density built forms within a mature landscape setting, and high proportion of landscape space and trees
  • for the social values associated with the retention of communal landscaped reserves and community facilities, whilst managing change to meet the contemporary requirements of residential usage.
