WVCC wishes to alert Woden residents to the proposal by the Canberra Southern Cross Club to change lease clauses of their Pitch and Putt course site in Phillip as a first step towards redeveloping the site. A master plan reflecting the possible future uses of the site (such as a gymnasium and hotel) can be seen in Development Application 201119563 on the ACT Planning and Land Authority (ACTPLA) website at: www.actpla.act.gov.au/
The WVCC will be objecting to this proposal. If approved, Woden will lose yet another valuable recreational facility and at a time when there are proposals to significantly increase the population in the Woden Town Centre through the construction of residential towers.
The WVCC strongly urges Woden residents to also object to this proposal to change the lease for the site of the Canberra Southern Cross Pitch and Putt course.
The deadline for submitting comments to the ACT Planning and Development Authority (ACTPLA) is Wednesday, is 18 May 2011.
