Save Curtin Shops!

By JulieA 21 June 2011 43

An application has been lodged with ACTPLA to change the lease on a part of the Curtin shops. 

If allowed seven retailers will be lost including the Q Bookshop, Capital Chemist, a restaurant and two fast food outlets. 

The entire block will be demolished and multi story residential units and offices will be built. 

I urge everyone who loves the Curtin shops the way they are or who appreciate the importance of Canberra’s local shopping centres (today Curtin – tomorrow ….?) to visit the ACTPLA site and look at the development proposal. 

Objections  to the proposed development application close on 28 June 2011. 

Please help  by sending a quick email to ACTPLA (there is a link on their site) objecting to the development application.

Save the shop!
Let then rot and fade away.
Then…Curtin will become less attractive, no one will want to live there because the public amenity is outdated, crime will increase and the downward spiral will continue.
Then…land prices will fall, the value of your house will fall and if you want to move on or retire the value of your biggest asset will be supressed and your nest egg will be scrambled.
What do you think Manuka, Kingston, Deakin, Braddon shops have done? They have made Forrest, Red Hill, Deakin and Ainslie some of the most desirable places to live?
Because development and continual improvement have led to growth, improvement and relevance to the changing social fabric.
Save the Curtin Shops…and you will go down with it!
