Development Proposal for 41 Curtin Place – With Q&A

A Development Application (DA) has been lodged with the ACT Environment and Planning Directorate. The proposal is to replace the north-western block of shops on the Curtin Square (the chemist, bookshop, milk bar, etc) with a six-storey building, including a double-height retail ground floor and five residential floors (50 apartments), with three levels of car parking underground. The total height above the square is 24 metres.

The community has concerns that a large building will loom over, and overshadow the square, which will change the current pleasant character of the shopping centre. There are also concerns about an increased pressure on car parking around the shops.

In November 2015 the Curtin Group Centre Master Plan was released which outlines a vision, planning principles and strategies to guide growth and development in the centre. It aims to identify what is important about the centre and how to enhance its environmental, social and economic sustainability. The master plan process was informed by input from the community and stakeholders, including traders and lessees in the centre. Read more …

Goodwin Farrer Redevelopment Update.

Update . ACAT has determined that the proposed development complies with the Territory Plan in every respect except that Buildings B, D and E need to be reconfigured or redesigned to address non-compliance with Criterion 7(a) of the Community facilities Zone (CFZ). Click image for enlarged version

The Goodwin Farrer redevelopment is currently receiving attention at the ACT Civil & Administrative Tribunal. Woden Valley residents may recall that approval was given on 18 November 2015 to this development at 22 Marshall St Farrer, a development which includes six new buildings of 5 and 6 storeys.

It has a Residential Aged Care Facility but about 75% of the residents will actually live in the associated, independent living, Retirement Village.   The development will be high density, equivalent to RZ 5 zoning.  Most of the 39 representations received were concerned with height, bulk and scale; and the resultant impact upon the low level neighbourhood.
