In September, the NCCC hosted its first online Candidates Forum on Zoom. The event, which was put together in partnership with the RiotACT and hosted by Canberra journalist and Region Media Group Editor Genevieve Jacobs, discussed a number of important issues for North Canberra residents, from planning issues to local health services.
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.

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.
