On 29 May 2010 at the NCA’s second annual public forum, the Chief Executive of the NCA, Gary Rake, announced a review into the National Capital Open Space System (NCOSS). The NCOSS review will determine what role the NCOSS should play and whether the existing delineation of open space is appropriate in terms of efficient land use, meeting national sustainability objectives, and maintaining it’s role in providing a landscape setting for the National Capital.

The NCOSS review report provides a series of recommendations describing ways to establish a framework for future reviews, greater promotion of the NCOSS, and better engage stakeholders in managing the values of the NCOSS. In December 2013, the Authority endorsed the report and its recommendations.
