Densification and climate change

The completion of a public housing complex of 14 dwellings on two large, original single-housing blocks on a bend in Smith Street, Weetangera is disappointing because it fails the climate change test. The image shows how most of the land area is covered by the buildings and driveways, leaving little room for greenery, especially trees. Another eight public housing dwellings are planned on the adjoining three blocks on Belconnen Way, shown here as cleared but now under construction.
