Future land releases in Canberra?

By justsomeaussie 6 August 2012 25

I’m looking to build/buy my family home around 2016 and am interested in what land releases might be available in that timeframe (2016-2018). I’ve been to the LDA website http://www.lda.act.gov.au but it really seems to be only focused on two years out. Does anyone know there is information on what long term planning there is for future releases.

The Googong site has been interesting but is starting to get quite a bit far out.

Any help anyone can provide is appreciated.

What’s Your opinion?

VYBerlinaV8_is_back,
I think the development of higher density dwellings along major transport corridors is adressing some of the things you’re talking about.

I’m not saying they’re necessarily good developments but Flemington Rd, Northbourne Ave, Athllon Dr and the new John Gorton Dr in Molonglo are increasing the housing density with easier access to Public transport which should help.

Good point.

Dunno, it’s just a idea. The question becomes whether we want to have a more dense inner city with fewer people commuting in, or not at all, or a compromise of some sort (which is what we have now).

At the right price, pretty much everything can be for sale.

Of course.

But who’s going to foot the bill for paying over the odds so that large numbers willingly sell their homes? The developers (ie. future buyers) or the government (ie. the taxpayer).

Yet, you have the temerity to laugh at what is currently being done. I’m not saying I disagree with your criticisms (some I do, some I don’t), but at least have an alternate plan that is better than if you throw them enough money inner north residents will sell up allowing the developers in to fill the sky with high-rise.

There will always be a compromise.

I’m laughing at what is currently being done because it is a crap solution that leads to crap outcomes. Building expensive, low quality housing (which is what small and expensive blocks leads to) is not a winning solution in the longer term.

And all those two-on-one block and small unit developments scattered through the suburb? Hardly proper redevelopment.

Is anybody claiming dual occupancy is proper redevelopment? It’s a small part of a wider solution.

I think it’s more an issue of ‘where’…
