The Canberra Times Letters to the Editor March 18 2016
The master plan image in the Manuka Green consultation website shows in some detail the footprint of the proposed Manuka Oval upgrade.
The Giants have been open and transparent regarding the proposed footprint and it is worth remembering that designs are yet to be finalised.
The Giants’ proposal does not include development along the Telopea Park corridor other than adding a running track for the community to enjoy.
We are proposing using the value of the land in a way which yields the community a significant upgrade to Manuka Oval. This is a proposal to jointly leverage the territory land assets to enhance the precinct and deliver improved community amenity, while embedding the Giants and AFL in Canberra forever.
Richard Griffiths, chief operating officer, GWS Giants FC.
