Defence Housing Australia (DHA) is proposing to develop ‘Lawson North’ into a vibrant and connected community for Defence families and the local community.


Located just nine kilometres from Canberra’s CBD, an opportunity exists to live in a new community within the heart of Belconnen— a highly connected site minutes from the city centre and the road networks that connect you to the rest of Canberra, from Gungahlin to Woden and beyond.


Staying true to Canberra’s Bush Capital concept, and with respect to the environmental and heritage attributes of the site, the majority of the land will be preserved for conservation to protect areas of ecological and historical significance.


The proposed masterplanned community will include a mix of traditional homes and medium-density living, that will become home to approximately 570 families.


Future residents will enjoy international-standard facilities on their doorstep including the Australian Institute of Sport, GIO Stadium, University of Canberra and Calvary Hospital.


Lawson North is now in the planning and design stage, with stage one civil works planned for 2021, and completion anticipated for 2023.
