Next meeting: BCC General Meeting 7pm Tuesday 20 October 2020
On behalf of everyone involved with the Belconnen Community Council, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Damien Haas. Damien has given 14 years of wonderful service to the Belco community, as a member of the BCC.
Damien has stepped down from the role as Deputy Chair after accepting a role with the Light Rail project. For the contribution that Damien has made to the Belco Community Council , we are forever grateful.
From Glen and all the Board members…Thanks mate and all the best in your new role!!!
The Belconnen Community Council are working hard to achieve the best outcome from this process, and although DV361 and the Kippax Masterplan have not met community expectations, with a poor community return compared to the massive commercial benefit, the strong community response has not gone unnoticed by the ACT Government. A better result can occur if the community demands it.
All members of the public are invited to attend the May Public Meeting of the Belconnen Community Council at Kippax Raiders Club on Hardwicke Cres, Holt on Tuesday May 21 to discuss the benefits and impacts of the Kippax Master Plan and DV361
Following the April public meeting of the Belconnen Community Council, held to discuss the benefits and problems with the Kippax Master Plan, Draft Variation 361 (that enables the loss of public open space for a shopping centre). Greens MLA Caroline Le Couteur (who attended the meeting), undertook to ask questions about the issues raised by the many members of the community that attended.
As a result of no ACT Government planners attending the April meeting (despite the BCC being assured they would attend), Tara Cheyne MLA for Ginninderra (who was also at the April meeting) undertook to write to the Planning Minister to seek an extension to the May 10 deadline for submissions on DV 361. That was granted, and the deadline has now been extended to June.
BCC Public meeting on May 21 to discuss Kippax Master Plan and DV 361
The BCC will be holding a second public meeting on the Kippax Master Plan and DV 361 on May 21 at the Kippax Raiders Club at 7PM. We are advised an ACT Government Planner will attend this meeting to explain the Master Plan and DV 361 to the community.
In March 2019 the ACT Government released the Kippax Master Plan and DV 361, the associated Draft Variation to amend the Territory plan, required for the public open space to be sold off for use as a shopping centre. Documents relating to the process and the community responses, are available here.
This month there are three presentations of interest to Belconnen residents – redevelopment plans for the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets, MLA Suzanne Orr talking about Giralang and Kaleen issues, and open discussion on budget priorities for the Belconnen Community Council budget submission
