The Minister for Planning Andrew Barr has announced he’s kicking off changes to the Territory Plan to increase the density of Gungahlin:
Minister for Planning Andrew Barr has released Territory Plan Draft Variation 300 – Gungahlin Town Centre – for public consultation.
“The draft variation proposes to increase the amount of land available for retail and office accommodation in and around the Centre and encourage more entertainment, recreation and community facilities,” Mr Barr said. “It is also designed to improve transport flow in and through the Centre and to encourage more people to use public transport.
“The Government expects the changes to boost both day and the night-time economies, increasing the Centre’s vibrancy and creating more opportunities for local employment.”
DV 300 was released as a notifiable instrument two days ago.
Gunghettes both for and against have until 28 February to mail firstname.lastname@example.org with their thoughts on the subject.
