NCCC Meeting 22 June – Summary

Talks at the NCCC June 22 2012 meeting were informative. The Greens proposed Rental Housing Bill has been given little likelihood of passing, despite its laudable environmental and social intentions. At the moment only the four ACT Greens members support the bill. Debate in the ACT Legislative Assembly is scheduled for August 2011. The presentation by contract group AECOM on the Belconnen to City Transit Way Study was a totally different kettle of fish. Work on the City end of the project is the first to get funding. A major key component, the Kingsley Street – Barry Drive intersection, is scheduled to be completed by January 2012, with the rest of Barry Drive work completed in March 2012. This work does affect Turner, O’Connor and City constituents and is relevant to the North Canberra Community Council. Links to the plan maps can be found on www.transport.act.gov.au/studies_projects
