One of the biggest issues currently before the ISCCC is the ACT Government’s plan to build a massive new residential development for about 4,000 people on both sides of Adelaide Avenue, near where it meets Cotter Road, adjacent to the Canberra Brickworks.
This estate will have a huge impact on Canberra residents living or working nearby and using transport links in the vicinity. You will be affected if you:
- live or work in Yarralumla, Deakin (including West Deakin), Curtin, Weston Creek, Woden and Molonglo
- use the shops, schools, medical and other community facilities in these suburbs
- travel to and from work via Cotter Road, Dudley Street, Kent and Novar Streets, Adelaide Avenue and Yarra Glen.
The ISCCC will hold a public forum on the development at 7 pm on Monday 7 July at the Canberra Deakin Football Club, 3 Grose Street, Deakin. It will address the design and livability of the development and neighbouring communities, the transport corridor from Weston Creek/Molonglo to Yarralumla/West Deakin, Woden and Civic, and Canberra’s national capital and garden city values.
Time is running out before the Government’s closing date of 14 July for submissions about the development.
This meeting will inform the ISCCC’s decision on how to respond to the Government’s consultation on this proposal.
