Our next public meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 25 has been cancelled due to the COVID 19 virus. We will continue to operate and will be using our website, Facebook and e-mail to keep the community informed.
We have asked Transport Canberra to advise us of the changes to the bus timetable and how we can comment to them as well as asking ACT Health how we can comment on the proposed Master Plan for the Canberra Hospital 2021 to 2041.
The present issues include:
The Coombs Shops: It is time for action!! Council has written to the Minister for Planning stating that "the time has come for the ACT Government to take decisive action to resolve what threatens to become one of the greatest planning blunders since the advent of self-government."
Read the full letter on our website and if you agree then write to the Minister.
Koko in Wright: ACTPLA have approved the revised plans for the Koko development in Wright. There are a number of conditions to be worked through by the developer but it is light on a supermarket for Wright and Coombs.
Health: With the spread of the Covid-19 virus in Australia please listen to the guidance being given by our Health experts. We all need to remain calm and work together through this crisis. The Weston Creek Walk-in-Health Centre is currently the place to assess possible cases.
Parking proposal at Cooleman Court: Council remains waiting for further discussions with officials from TCCS about what is to be finally proposed for the site off Parkinson Street.
Survey: The initial results from our survey concern policing, traffic and parking at Cooleman Court, the poor state of public areas, street trees and footpaths, planning and development and rates and taxes.
Hooning: Council has received replies from the Minister for Police and the Minister for Road Safety in relation to "hooning" on our local roads. These are on our website but do not really bring any confidence that there will be any change to the current situation.
Trennery Square: We remain waiting for a response from TCCS on what we had proposed in changes to the Square to make it more attractive and inviting to our residents so that it will be utilised more.
Get in Touch: If there are issues that you wish to raise or discuss, please phone the council on 6288-8975. Otherwise, to keep-up-to-date with all issues affecting Weston Creek and Molonglo, please monitor the Weston Creek Community Council's website at westoncreek.org.au or follow us on Facebook.
