The West Belconnen / Parkwood development will include three new suburbs in the north west of Canberra adjacent to Holt and Macgregor and a new settlement in the Yass Valley immediately adjacent to the border.

The vision for the development is to create a community that provides diverse, affordable and inclusive places to live, work and play. There will be a range of housing options for individuals and families at affordable prices.

Strathnairn and Macnamara have been announced as the first two suburb names for the West Belconnen/Parkwood development. Strathnairn is named after the property of Strathnairn, located in the Belconnen district and Macnamara is named after Dame Jean Macnamara, a pioneering Australian medical scientist. More information about the suburb names can be found here.

With the potential to deliver up to 11,500 new homes accommodating about 30,000 people, the project will help meet existing and future demand for housing for the next 30-40 years.
