The Belconnen Community Council had a very active role in facilitating community engagement in initial consultations on what should be in the Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan. The eagerly awaited draft Master Plan has now been released and this again presents an important opportunity to have your say on issues you feel strongly about – whether you’re in favour of ideas or think some ideas need further work.
Key themes or issues in the draft Master Plan include:
- public domain,
- Lake Ginninderra,
- building heights,
- central ‘civic’ area of Belconnen,
- creating a destination at Emu Bank,
- Lathlain Street residential development,
- University of Canberra connectivity with the Belconnen Town Centre
However you feel about the issues in the Master Plan, it is ultimately a draft. The next 7 weeks provide an important opportunity for us to consider – as a community – what ideas should remain and what might need further tweaking or amendments.
Comments are due by 20 November 2015. From 30 September there will be a range of ways to make your views known. The BCC will be facilitating consultation and want to hear from Belconnen residents about the future of the Belconnen Town Centre.
