We should allow more dual occupancies in Canberra.
The ACT Government has made it almost impossible to build dual occupancies in Canberra. On the right blocks, dual occupancies can work well. In contrast to over-sized complexes in the wrong locations, good dual occupancies maintain our suburban characteristics and give options for down-sizers and young families.
Let’s have a discussion about the way forward. What do you think?
Please let us know your ideas for how we can make Franklin better.
Thank you for you interest in making Tuggeranong a better place. Please let us know your comments.
William Hovell Drive is a car park for Canberra’s morning commuters. For too long, West Belconnen residents have had to put up with long traffic queues and delays on this road, while ACT Labor ignores the problem.
Sign the petition below to call on the government to duplicate William Hovell Drive between Coppins Crossing Road and Drake Brockman Drive.
