It has been another busy month in North Canberra planning news. In particular, the recent use of Ministerial ‘call-in’ powers to fast-track the Dickson ‘Common Ground’ development exemplifies many of the concerns by residents about the current nature of the ACT’s planning processes.
See the attached brochure from the Lake Burley Griffin Guardians addressing West Basin and Acton Park. The Lake Burley Griffin Guardians are a non-profit community group committed to safeguarding one of Canberra’s greatest treasures, the open space of Lake Burley Griffin and its lakeshore landscape setting.

The North Canberra Community Council (NCCC) is the officially recognised peak community body representing the interests and concerns of the residents and businesses within the Inner North region of Canberra. We liaise with the ACT Government, our community and other interested parties to promote and enhance the economic, cultural, social and environmental wellbeing of the North Canberra community.
The NCCC is made up of volunteers who regularly engage with the various suburban groups and residents in our area so we can work together to preserve what is best about North Canberra and ensure that as we grow and redevelop that it is always a great place to live, work and play.
