The Chronicle’s strange Facebook presence brings word of opposition from the Tuggers, Woden and Weston Creek community councils against Draft Variation 303 which opens the way for more urban infill.
Vice chair of the Woden Valley Community Council, Dr Jenny Stewart, said the council had requested the draft variation be withdrawn.
“The variations have huge consequences for Canberra, and there hasn’t been enough time to consult about it,” she said.
“It clears the way for further intensification of development in Canberra’s established suburbs.
“Concerns raised by Canberra residents over excessive multi-unit developments in their suburbs and inappropriate design and quality of developments have not been addressed by the draft variation.
Having already extended the consultation it seems unlikely the Government will withdraw it completely.
