There will be a Question and Answer Session with ACT Government representative, Mr Peter Johns, on Wednesday 18 January at 6 pm, in the Canberra Korean Uniting Church Hall, corner of Doonkuna and Coranderrk Streets, Reid.

Mr Peter Johns, Senior Manager, Asset Management Branch of the Community Services Directorate ACT, has kindly agreed to respond to questions. He has also offered to take on notice, and forward, questions best addressed to other Directorates.

All residents and owners in Monterey Apartments and Argyle Square are invited to attend.

Please make every effort to attend, as the information that we receive should help in preparing our submissions to ACTPLA regarding the preliminary rezoning of the redevelopment area.

The proposal is for an increase of 1750 residents in the redevelopment precinct. The section of this precinct in Reid (bounded by Cooyong St, Boolee St, Kogarah Lane and Ainslie Avenue) includes several high rise blocks, including a 9 storey block at the corner of Boolee St and Kogarah Lane, and 12 and 15 storey blocks at the corner of Ainslie Ave and Cooyong Street.

The first stage in the approval process for this redevelopment is the adoption of a draft variation to the Territory Plan. The deadline for public submissions on this draft variation is 20 February 2012.
