Simon Corbell has announced a master plan for Tuggeranong:
Mr Corbell release the finalised Tuggeranong town centre master plan that looks to make Tuggeranong a unique place to live and work, to boost residential development and enhance the gateway to the mountains and the Murrumbidgee River.
“This plan sets out a direction that will create the opportunity for a more sustainable urban lifestyle close to some of Canberra’s best natural landscapes,” Mr Corbell said.
“The plan works with the town centre’s street grid to establish views to the mountains, residential redevelopment that can take advantage of good solar orientation, walking and cycling links to Lake Tuggeranong; and sunny, sheltered spaces for outdoor dining and relaxation.”
Mr Corbell said a mix of on-street and basement car parking would be increased to ensure convenient parking for centre users for both quick trips and all day parking needs.
“The plan outlines short-term parking on streets and long-term parking on the perimeter of the town centre.
“Up to 7,800 new dwellings in the town centre are recommended to support the viability of existing retail and other services and facilities in the centre and the plan recommends better connections to the valley’s unique landscape by improving pedestrian access to the lake, and protecting views to surrounding hills and mountains.
