NO buildings on Darwinia Terrace, Chapman

This petition had 24 supporters


The ACT government plans to put potentially vulnerable people in harm's way in a Bushfire Prone Area by building 20 public housing flats. We want the government to STOP building on Block 1, Section 45 and keep this a green community space. Reasons outlined below:

  • the building of flats are based on deceptive 'technical amendments' done to the zoning WITHOUT consultation -(this means anywhere in Canberra, community-zoned land can be used for urban infill at any time).
  • the land is for community use, and they enjoy this area;
  • wildlife use this as a green corridor; 
  • turning circles are insufficient for emergency vehicles;
  • it is a poor site for public housing flats from a services viewpoint -  far away from amenities;
  • there is no commitment as to who is being located the units;
  • it is a high-cost option that doesn't achieve the Government's stated policy objectives;
  • parking will be in short supply.
