Revamping Woden

Revamping Woden

Today Geocon announced the construction of 4 residential buildings (one 24 storeys) on the Tradies Club site in Woden. Although the WVCC supports development in the Woden Town Centre, we will seek to ensure great outcomes and the social and economic benefits residents of Woden deserve. We will ask for information, inter alia, on overshadowing, privacy of balconies, car parking, traffic impacts and the capacity of the local schools to cater for the growing population. The development will be discussed at our next public meeting on Wednesday, 1 November 2017, at 7pm at the Southern Cross Club. We will ask Geocon if they can attend to respond to questions from the community.
