The ACT Government is planning to build a new housing development for 4,000 people on both sides of Adelaide Avenue, where it meets the Cotter Road near the Canberra brickworks. This will have a massive impact on all Canberra residents living or working nearby and using local transport links.
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.
A panel of experts and community representatives will discuss the new development and answer your questions:
Amanda Evans, President, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, ACT Branch
Representative(s) of Planning Institute of Australia, ACT Division
Representatives of the residents’ associations of Yarralumla, Deakin and nearby suburbs.
Topics will include the impact on:
the design and livability of the new development and on neighbouring communities, including local infrastructure, facilities and green open space
the transport corridor from Weston Creek/Molonglo through to Yarralumla/West Deakin, Woden and Civic
Canberra’s national capital and garden city values.
This meeting will inform ISCCC’s decision on how to respond to the Government’s consultation on and emerging public concern about this proposal.
