Yesterday the ABC noted that, despite promises of the ACT Government and the National Capital Authority (NCA) working in harmony from here to the hereafter, the two were at loggerheads over housing in the Molonglo Valley.
The particular problem appears to be “Central Molonglo” which runs behind Higgins and Hawker.
East Molonglo (across from the likes of Cook and Weetangera) is still on the boards as far as I understand the issues.
Anyway Andrew Barr is promising to go over the NCA’s heads and talk to Bod Debus about it.
Meanwhile the Greens’ Shane Rattenbury finds himself agreeing with the NCA. He also seems to be opposed to the development because it’s so 80’s style and “there were some regrettable musical and fashion trends from that time”.
