Some of you might recall participating in a survey the Belconnen Community Council conducted earlier this year on the Belconnen Town Centre.

The BCC has analysed the results, and prepared a comprehensive report. Themes include the need for more convenient, cheaper and more accessible parking, and a desire for more and better connected street-level amenity. On the issue of building heights, there was no clear majority support to restrict building heights; the issue is much more complex.

The report is accessible here or via direct download here.

The BCC is interested – what results ring true for you?

At the moment the quickest way to get between the lake and places like Oatley Ct/Weedon Cl is through Westfield!

Not if you’re driving!

Thanks for a good report.

A comment: street level amenity in Belco would be dramatically improved if there was a moratorium on any further expansion of Westfield, and more of what’s already going on by the lake, at the Markets, and up the top of the town centre around Oatley Court etc.

Thanks! It was a huge undertaking, but so worthwhile to now have an evidence base of peoples’ views of the Town Centre. I think it will be an important and useful document for years to come. Personally, would love to see more restaurants and cafes in the residential region open til say 9-10pm (so residents and businesses can coexist peacefully!) and even more entertainment options up in the industrial area – and easy pedestrian activity between both. At the moment the quickest way to get between the lake and places like Oatley Ct/Weedon Cl is through Westfield!
