ACT Planning Review

The Inner South Canberra Community Council has produced its own District Planning Strategy

Petition on densification on Hawker RZ1 blocks

Residents near two Housing ACT properties in Alexandria St, Hawker, have organised a petition objecting to plans released in this Christmas-New Year period to replace two single houses with five (see above under DAs). The plans would result in significant loss of green space and trees in contradiction of the recent changes accepted by the ACT Government under Variation 369 to reduce the heat island effect of hard surfaces that absorb heat. The petition can be signed online or submitted on paper. Consultation on this DA closes on 17 January 2022.

Blocks 21 and 22 are scheduled for densification in an ordinary residential zone not designated for such.

Consultation on WHD duplication

The Belconnen Community Council had a presentation on 14 November and are ready to run a special meeting on December 14, prior to consultation closing on the William Hovell Drive duplication on 19 December, if there’s enough interest. TCCS have offered to update on progress at that time. If you’d like BCC to run this event, please get in touch by 7 December at hello@belcouncil.org.au. The current information on WHD is at https://yoursayconversations.act.gov.au/WHDupgrade.
