The draft City and Gateway Framework was released on 1st March for public consultation. Details are at https://www.yoursay.act.gov.au/city-and-gateway-draft-urban-design-framework. This covers future development on the strip along Northbourne Avenue from Stirling Ave in Watson to the City. The areas affected in Downer are shown in the accompanying map. A workshop was held at the Downer Community Centre on 9th April, and further comments were invited from interested people. Submissions closed on 6th May, but it is expected that there will be future community engagement on the proposal.
