Committee vacancy – nominations sought!

The BCC Committee is currently seeking nominations to fill the vacant position on our committee. Are you interested in community issues, planning, and promoting Belconnen? Have you attended three public meetings in the past 12 months? If you’ve answered yes to both questions, we’d love to hear from you. Please submit a short paragraph about yourself to by Sunday, 14 June. In the event we receive more than one nomination, we will have a brief vote at the public meeting on Tuesday, 16 June.

Consultations and planning

  • In addition to the update at our meeting, information sessions on the West Belconnen development are being held on Thursday, 11 June at 5pm and Saturday, 13 June at 10am at the Kippax Project Office.
  • The auction of Section 200 in Belconnen (the car park behind the Labor Club) will be held on 17 June.
  • Of particular interest is the updated Indicative Land Release program. If you have any questions about this, please contact us. I’ll provide a quick overview in the Chair’s Report at the public forum.

Community information

  • The Belconnen Arts Centre Pozible campaign which we promoted last month was successfully funded! Thanks to all in the community for their support.
  • Did you know Strathnairn Arts, located just past Holt, has a cafe open Thursday to Sunday? For more information, click here.
  • The ACT Government keeps a comprehensive online list of permanent overnight and temporary road closures, as well as community path closures. There are a number of closures across Belconnen presently.

As always, if you have any concerns or queries, or want more information about anything, please get in touch with us.
