Acquiring Land in the ACT

Finding suitable, affordable and well located land ready for building can occur in a variety of ways.

The ACT Government-owned Suburban Land Agency (SLA) develops and sells most of the land in the ACT. Information about land available for purchase from the SLA can be found on their web site at

The ACT Government is also selling the remediated blocks from the Loose Fill Asbestos Eradication Scheme (former Mr Fluffy blocks). These blocks will be on sale over the coming years across 56 suburbs in Tuggeranong, Weston Creek, Woden, Belconnen, the Inner North and the Inner South.

Blocks that have been remediated and determined by experts to be free of loose fill asbestos have been removed from a register of affected houses and will either be offered back to the previous owner to purchase
through a First Right of Refusal process or placed on the open market for sale by auction by the SLA.

Further information about land sales from the SLA is available at

Land is also being developed in the ACT and surrounding regions by private developers or in joint venture with the SLA. Information about current projects is provided below:
