Molonglo Valley plans

By Kerces 18 November 2005 23

Maelinar sent in the plan for Molonglo Valley showing what the government’s going to do with the area.

Looks like there’ll be lots of nice riverfront real estate as well as some vinyards and the possibility of some land being retained for broadacre usage (anyone care to enlighten me?).

Mael said, “I note that there aren’t any indications that there will be schools, emergency services, police or anything else on what looks to be quite a sizeable development.”

ACTPLA has more information about the development as well as how and where to comment on it.

What’s Your opinion?

The gist of the conversation I followed earlier was that only about 1/3 of the houses were for oldies and the rest were on for young and old (pardon the pun).

I do recall something about it being a great idea to ‘batch process’ them, with the intent that as you become more infirm, the lower down the housing complex you go, and the people above you subsidise your spiralling healthcare costs.

I think it’s filed somewhere between ‘Soylent Green’ and ‘Maelinar’s rantings’…

I think the Ainslie development is only for old people…….

Hate to point out the obvious, but the construction of lots brand spanking new houses pushes down house prices generally. House prices, and particularly rents, are unsustainably high in Canberra presently.

I’ll wait for the subsequent fall in prices with eager anticipation now that the Belconnen, Kippax, Gungahlin, Kingston and soon to be Ainslie developments come on line then.

Or do we think that prices will drop but they keep skyrocketing upwards ?

In my experience with recent housing prices, it’s certainly been the latter…
