Coombs is the first Canberra suburb to have its public housing planned from the outset and the ACT government aims to have it built by Christmas next year.

The Land Development Agency has submitted plans to construct 158 units on seven separate sites across the new suburb on the Molonglo River.

Four of the seven proposed multi-unit development applications under review by the ACT Planning and Land Authority are for 25-dwelling constructions, with a 17 unit construction proposed for Woodbury Avenue and Cornelius Street and a 16 unit building planned for Taggart Terrace.

Budget-bannerWCCC’s major concern in framing the forthcoming ACT Budget is to address the needs of the Weston Creek Community. Some of the services they require have been requested numerous times over a number of years. It is frustrating to observe that they will be provided to the new Molonglo Community or the Woden community and once more the people of Weston Creek will miss out.  Council also commented on:

  • Upgrade of the Cotter Road;
  • Second petrol station for Weston Creek/Molonglo;
  • Draft Master Plan for Weston Group Centre;
  • A new community centre;
  • Fetherston Gardens;
  • Changing population issues;
  • Transportation;
  • Upgrade of the Fisher Shops; and
  • Broad issues of TAMS underfunding, waste disposal, parking, light rail, Molonglo, focus on northern Canberra, loss of green space and sporting facilities.
