The original application submitted by the developers was refused planning approval on 20th May 2015. In 2016 they submitted a revised application, which was approved by ACTPLA. Subsequently, an appeal was lodged with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal jointly by the owners of the Dickson Woolworths site, Dickson Residents Group and Downer Community Association. Hearings were held in November & December 2016 and were concluded in March 2017. A final decision by the Tribunal has not yet been made.
