Frewin Place redevelopment

The old Scullin Health Centre building, recently occupied by the Alzheimers Association, on the section of land at the corner of Belconnen Way and Chewings Street, has just been demolished. The ACT Government intends selling that portion of land to a community housing organisation, yet to be identified. This area has been subdivided and, in recent years, two blocks were sold for the Cerebral Palsy Association health building and for the Cambodian Buddhist Temple. The intention for two other blocks has not been made public. It is possible that only the block on which Humpy Hall stands will remain in public ownership, along with the car park.

Community Housing

Blocks 20 and 24 of Section 43 on Frewin Place, Scullin are being investigated for their suitability for a community housing provider to develop and use for community housing.  These blocks are the site of the former Scullin Community Health Centre which was occupied by Alzheimer’s Australia over recent years.  Humpy Hall (Block 13), the Cerebral Palsy Alliance (Block 22) and the Buddhist temple (Block 28) will remain.
