I note with interest your article in this weeks Canberra Chronicle on page 3 ! I am alarmed by the number of apartments that are planned to be built in the WODEN Precinct ! In one block alone it is proposed to build 480 apartments on the car park north of the Library, then another 492 on the old Strathgordon site, but then on a site near Brewer Street a further 600 apartments are to be built in the tallest building in Woden ! But then I read on and see that it is proposed to build over 20 residential towers comprising 5000 apartments to house around 10,000 people ! Where do you expect these people to shop, be educated, see Doctors and receive hospital care let alone drive walk or play ? I also note that in the building on the old bus/police site you plan an indoor sports centre and one wonders about a pool or more than that a HYDROTHERAPY POOL that we have just lost in Woden ? I had hopes that a HYDROTHERAPY POOL could be built on the OLD CIT site but that now seems out of the question ? However I would like to see more support coming from WVCC for the ageing members of this area and the south of Canberra to get a replacement HYDROTHERPY built ASAP in this area ! I look forward to your response and support as we the ageing are being forgotten in this governments and it appears your plans !
