More development for the Belconnen Foreshore?

By johnboy 8 January 2009 51

The Liberal’s Alistair Coe is drawing attention to plans for a new residential development on Lake Ginninderra.

The 15 apartments are planned to be built on the site of the old Pizza Hut with commercial space below for the sort of mixed use development many people would like to see more of.

Alistair isn’t completely agin in it, yet. But he is asking about the impact on other residences (and possibly other businesses):

    “If approved, there are concerns that noise and traffic from nearby businesses could make the location inappropriate for residences. The area is already suffering from a lack of parking, and increased traffic may worsen the situation.

    Both Queensland and New South Wales consider the order of occupancy when making decisions regarding noise and other similar complaints.

    “Order of occupancy rules can help ensure that existing businesses and residents are given due consideration before changes to an area are approved, or complaints are upheld,” Mr Coe said.

    “The Belconnen Town Centre has seen many great developments and many more should follow. We must ensure that all developments, especially those that include residences, are in locations appropriate for all concerned.”

    “The Lake Ginninderra Foreshore is a great precinct for entertainment, retail, offices and residences.”

    “Clarity would provide certainty for existing businesses and new developers.””

Charnwood failed??

Actually, Charny seems to be doing its job of attracting lowlifes and “stabby-stabby” types quite well….

(no offence to the two nice people I know in carnycharny…)

“Anyone been to Page Tavern recently? Whenever I have gone past it seems to be inhabited by bikers, although I can’t say I’ve ever been in there for a drink.”

I go maybe once or twice a month, on average. Very nice people. A bunch of regulars have beards, but I don’t think there are any “bikers” per se.

I’m actually overdue for a visit. I might pop in later tonight!

Except Charnwood was based upon an English method.

Which still failed mind you 😉

Oh yeah… Trendy cafes? In Belco? Ha! I’d love to see it.

What part of Belco Mall has the nice sunny aspect and a view of the lake? Why the car park, of course!

Where’s the best bakery in Belco? Hidden in a miserably dark area of the F&V markets, miles from anywhere!

The upcoming developments (mall/bus interchange) will push the focus even further away from Fast Food Alley.

The place is planned by Muppets.

Many years after being shunned from the Mall, Hansel & Gretel’s will get its revenge as the primary focus (as I see it) of the new developments in Belco will be Lathlain Street. I reckon a wise business person would look to establish themseleves there before the developments are completed (eg. the now vacated Koomarri shop).

niftydog: what do you expect? It was rushed into existance when the Public Service finally transitioned up here from Melbourne, using some of the ‘finest forward-thinking’ planning methodologies from the US… and what did we end up with? Charnwood. Lulz.

It’s slowly going ahead. Tallest building in ACT, apparently.

Oh good, so the new residences won’t be bothered by that pesky autumn afternoon sun then.
