The Canberra Times brings word that the Gubbmint is planning to tear down the old Kingston bus depot to flog off the land for yuppie hutches.
The plan is to throw up some form of building to house the markets down by the lake.
- If a new building is approved, the markets will be run from an undercover car park for 12 months until the construction finishes. The ACT Heritage Council has decided the 1940s buildings, which were once used to service Canberra’s buses, lack the historical or architectural value to warrant listing on the Heritage Register.
UPDATE: With the ABC Mr Stanhope is trying to distance himself from the proposal while he figures out just how unpopular it would be.
