Quality childcare in a

Are you part of “A huge groundswell of anger”?

By johnboy 30 July 2010 41

The Canberra Times is leading with John Thistleton’s supposition that:

A huge groundswell of anger is brewing among residents of Canberra’s inner suburbs over unit developments.

Which is curious, because as a long term inner northican I look at the developments with some hope that they might one day lead to prices low enough that I too may buy.

So maybe it’s land owners of Canberra’s inner suburbs getting grumpy?

Personally I find the character of the area suffers more when an ex-govvie share shouse is knocked down to build a multi-storey mcmansion than a block of apartments.

People talk of Gungahlin streets being thin, but I’ve since realised that many of the smaller loops streets in Dickson and surrounds are just as small. Unfortunately these seem to be the areas where huge blocks of units are being built.
