Simon Corbell has announced Draft Variation 318 to make Tuggeranong the Paris of Southern Canberra:
Draft variation 318 to the Territory Plan proposes amending the Greenway precinct map and code to raise maximum building heights in the town centre.
“While allowing greater building heights the variation will protect and accentuate key views of the distant hills and mountains through building setbacks in key locations,” he said.
The variation proposes rezoning a number of parcels of land to encourage development consistent with the master plan.
“Parts of Greenway sections 57, 58, 59, 65 and 66 are to be rezoned to CZ2 to encourage a mix of residential and small scale commercial development whilst maintaining public access to the lake foreshore.
Rezoning section 7 and 12 enables the extension of business area of the town centre to both sides of Soward Way and rezoning of part of block 5 section 10 Greenway to RZ4 (medium density residential)will promote residential development in this key lake side location.
The variation also proposes changes to the parking and vehicular access general code to reduce carparking requirements for new offices in the Tuggeranong town centre from 2.5 to 2 car spaces per 100m2 of Gross Floor Area (GFA).
