Even more intriguingly she describes it as “a sustainable, medium-density development in a town centre“.
She does make some good arguments in its favour:
“It is in the right location for high quality infill development.”
“There are real potential environmental benefits here, including the fact that Woden Green, compared with a standard Greenfield development with the same number of dwellings, will use only 10% of the land, and have only 5% of the roads.”
“The development is next to the Woden bus interchange and has a commuter cycle path going through it, so it will have great transport connections. It is also next to Eddison Park and Woden Town Centre, and close to the Canberra Hospital and schools in Garran and Deakin.”
“The Woden Green development will provide an option for people who want to live in the town centre, close to shops and public transport, without the need for a car.”
One can’t help but wait with bated breath to see what the high density developments will look like!
