I see a temporary fence has recently been erected around the derelict Aranda shops. Presumably something to do with the ACT government’s notice of intention to terminate the Crown lease held by the current owner/developer.
Any inside story on this?
On a related note, I’ve been told by the owners of the IGA at Cook that the Cook shops are soon to be re-vamped with new landscaping, paving, seating etc taking up some of the existing car-park. Plus a rumour the newly leased premises which had been empty for quite a while (formerly family counselling of some sort) is to be a cafe. This is something I’ve heard many a neighbour in Cook fantasising about.
