An application has been lodged with ACTPLA to change the lease on a part of the Curtin shops.
If allowed seven retailers will be lost including the Q Bookshop, Capital Chemist, a restaurant and two fast food outlets.
The entire block will be demolished and multi story residential units and offices will be built.
I urge everyone who loves the Curtin shops the way they are or who appreciate the importance of Canberra’s local shopping centres (today Curtin – tomorrow ….?) to visit the ACTPLA site and look at the development proposal.
Objections to the proposed development application close on 28 June 2011.
Please help by sending a quick email to ACTPLA (there is a link on their site) objecting to the development application.
