Issues include:

Vocational Education and Training in South Canberra

Minister for Education and Training Joy Burch MLA will discuss options for the future development of vocational education and training in South Canberra (with implications for Woden Valley, Weston Creek and Tuggeranong). WVCC is particularly interested to hear about planning for the future of Woden CIT, also the site of the popular Farmers’ Market held every Sunday.  In addition to discussing Woden CIT, Joy is happy to answer questions about Education and Training more generally, as well as other aspects of her portfolio (which includes Disability, Children and Young People and the Arts).

Redevelopment of the Woden Bus Interchange

Rod Baxter of the Economic Development Directorate will discuss the current phase of the planned redevelopment. WVCC (and others) have expressed concerns about the new Interchange, its relationship with the Westfield shopping mall and whether the proposed public realm improvements will really provide improved amenity for users of the Town Centre and Woden Town Square.

We will also be discussing a range of other matters, including ongoing problems with space and facilities for Active Outdoor Recreation in Woden Valley, an update on initiatives from the Combined Community Councils, and the latest news on the multi-storey car park development planned for the northern section of the Woden 9 site.

Come along and have your say! The WVCC committee is particularly keen to hear from you if you are prepared to give us a hand with organising meetings, and preparing publicity. The effectiveness of the Council in representing the interests of the Woden Valley community depends crucially on the availability of volunteers prepared to carry on its work.

 All welcome!
