Still no Giralang shops

By Rollersk8r - 30 October 2013 24

The Canberra Times brings the most news I’ve heard on the Giralang shops in a while http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/war-returns-to-woolies-site-20131028-2wccn.html. Doesn’t seem like much of a scoop, other than highlighting that one determined party can seemingly delay development forever and ever.

I’ve lived in Giralang around 8 years and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. Quite clearly, the developer will hold out forever to get some return on investment – and those who oppose it will hold out forever to protect their investments. Meanwhile, the residents have been the only losers in this battle for 9 years.  Nine years!  One would have to assume even if it was all resolved tomorrow it would be another 2 years before the existing buildings are demolished and rebuilt, which takes us up to 11 years. It’s unbelievable that anything can take so long…

What’s Your opinion?

Anyone else seen the “McDonalds Opening Soon” sign at Giralang Shops? Girlfriend said she saw it the other day. Find it bizarre that we cant have another Woolworths but we can have another Mcdonalds!!!

It’s not a real sign.

It’s just a protest sign. It is actually down at the moment though.
Supabarn protesting is a bit rich – as they put the giralang shoprite/ IGA and middle kaleen shops out of business in the 90s
