Canberra MLA Shane Rattenbury takes questions on “Mr Fluffy” loose-fill asbestos houses at the North Canberra Community Council meeting on 19 November 2014.
Canberra’s Capital Metro’s Ema Thomas and Stephen Allday respond to 35 questions about the Business Case that were provided several days prior to the meeting on 19 November 2014.
The Master plan has been developed using urban design and planning principles to provide a vision for Grevillea Park as a recreational hub for community use.
The National Capital Authority, which is responsible for the management of Lake Burley Griffin, supports the development of water-based recreational facilities at Grevillea Park.
At our October meeting we passed a motion that called on the ACT Government, if it does build the light rail, to commit to:
* building all of the fifteen light rail stops shown in the September Industry Briefing presentation unless there is a business case that clearly demonstrates the advantages of having fewer stops;
* publishing the criteria that it intends to use to determine which stops to retain; and
* conducting public consultation on which stops should be retained.
On 4 November the Chief Minister provided the following response:
Campbell Section 5 is a proposed multi-storey mixed use development on the north east corner of the intersection of Anzac Parade and Constitution Avenue.

If you have a question but can’t attend the meeting, please include your question in a comment on this article. The two questions that NCCC judge to be most interesting will be put to Capital Metro at the meeting.
If you lodge your question by 10 November, NCCC will forward it to Capital Metro so that they can do some research and provide a more considered response.
