Next NCCC Forum Wednesday 21 November 2012

The final North Canberra Community Council forum for this year will be held on Wednesday 21 November.

We have invited a guest speaker from Telstra to talk to us about the roll out of ADSL 2+ to North Lyneham, Downer and Watson residents.   Following on from this an ACTPLA representative will be briefing the meeting on Technical Amendment 2012-06.

TA2012-06 seeks to amalgamate all of the commercial zone objectives and development codes into a single new Commercial Zones Development Code.  More than 100 precinct plans for suburbs and designated centres have been added for clarification.  We will also be briefed on TA2012-30.  Both amendments require comments by Monday 3 December.

Other issues which we intend to consider are:

  • implications of the Tralee development approval on aircraft noise for north Canberra residents;
  • Health Care Consumers Association initiatives to improve public health services; and
  • a review of the ACT election

The meeting is on Wednesday 21 November 2012 at ACT Sport House, 100 Maitland Street, Hackett at 7:30 – 9:30pm
