ACT election: meet the Kurrajong candidates on 27 September 2016

Never before have there been so many issues confronting residents of inner south Canberra. Planning, transport, parking, heritage, public housing, rates, transparency in government, the list goes on.

On 15 October, we will be electing 5 members to represent us in the ACT Assembly in the new electorate of Kurrajong. Make sure you know where they stand on the issues that matter to you.

Come to the ISCCC Forum at 7pm on 27 September 2016 at the Eastlake Football Club, 3 Oxley Street, Griffith. Listen to their vision for our suburbs and question them closely to see whether your priorities are their priorities.

Canberra Brickworks Precinct – Update

Developers have submitted their proposals and a short list will be invited to tender for development of the CBP. The tender process is scheduled to start before the end of the year. The Community Panel, which includes 4 members of the YRA committee, have been invited to review the proposals, particularly in relation to how they have addressed the Precinct Objectives, which were formulated by the Community Panel. Due to the confidential nature of this process, members of the Community Panel will be limited in what we can report back to our members.
