Planned

Boolimba Cres Housing ACT - Elevation

ACT Housing has plans to demolish two sets of heritage duplexes on Boolimba Cres opposite the tennis courts.Boolimba Cres is listed on the Register of Significant Streetscapes and these Duplexes with their build form and positioning is a vital component of this listing. Bulldozing them and replacing with new build forms with setback of the front courtyards only 700mm from the front boundary will change this link forever.

ONCC Inc has objected to the development and has lodged an appeal at ACAT. It is trying to list the duplexes on the heritage register

Areas of Disadvantage

abs map

The attached map of Inner South Canberra area was downloaded from Google earth and shows Australian Bureau of Statistics SIEFA Indexes of relative disadvantage at a sub-suburb level. It identifies the areas around sites like Gowrie Court, Stuart Flats and Red Hill Flats as hot spots of disadvantage. It also clearly identifies the residential neighbourhood surrounding the Narrabundah shops (AKA Old Narrabundah) as a pocket of disadvantage in its own right… Quite distinct from the rest of Narrabundah which is relatively well off. Narrabundah as a whole has 20% public housing. This map suggests that Old Narrabundah area would have well in excess of 20% public housing. Housing ACT plans for adding more public housing into an area already overloaded would be making a pocket of disadvantage worse off.

ACAT Appeal

ONCC Inc decided to appeal the decision . After paying the application fee the ACAT T Docs were sent out in hard copy.

The T Docs were scanned and I requested ACAT that they be put on this website. This request was denied as ACAT are adverse to modern technology, they love printers. The excuse was that they were confidential !

ACAT docs will be on this page when their judgement is made

Building Commonwealth Bridge – McKie Collection

0

Posted by ONCC | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 29-09-2014

Please find attached images taken by a fellow I met years ago by the name of Ian Cooper. Ian told me he was visiting Canberra from Tasmania. He was drawn from his stroll through Civic by the bellow of a two-stroke diesel coming from the Lake Burley Griffin construction site area. He thus walked in the direction of the sound and soon found the source, a Le Tourneau-Westinghouse C-Pull scraper powered by a two-stroke 8V71N General Motors diesel. The 8V71N is known as ‘The Bird Scarer’. The scraper operator noticed Ian’s interest in the machine and decided to put on a show for him. This is one very brave man. This type of machine has no steering wheel as such. It is pointed into the preferred direction of travel via a toggle switch mounted on the dash fascia panel. The operator hangs on to a horizontally mounted bar on the panel aptly referred to as the ‘panic bar’. From the toggle switch, steering is actuated by a maze of electric contacts and breakers along with pinions and ring gears situated in the hitch. With all that water flying around he was surely tempting fate.

I think you will also find the images of the bridges, old and new interesting. Apparently, the large mobile crane pictured working on Commonwealth Avenue Bridge fell over.

I was born in Canberra in 1960 and have seen a lot of changes. I have been around the world, but Canberra, Narrabundah (Narrahollywood) to be precise, is the best place to live, bar none.

The development of the Hungarian Club in Narrabundah gave rise to a review of Concessional Leases in the ACT.  The transparency & secrecy surrounding the development of land granted to non-profit community organizations was a concern. The objections of residents has been overruled by the Planning Minister by his definition of the public interest.

Narrabundah Tyre Slasher

1

Posted by ONCC | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 30-11-2013

A or several vandals have been active in Narrabundah for over 20 years, destroying car tyres by spiking the tyre walls. Victims have to replace all tyres damaged that can cost a motza.

The criminal/s responsible for this property damage can only be brought to justice if the community and the police co-operate. All incidents of damage and information must be reported to crime stoppers.

Canberra Ave Bus Transit Way

0

Posted by ONCC | Posted in Transport | Posted on 13-09-2013

Tags: ,

The introduction of the Red Rapid bus service from DFO Fyshwick to Gungahlin made possible a quick regular service for Narrabundah residents. The initial route included a bus stop at Fyshwick Markets and Kingston Railway Station. The second route included a bus stop on Canberra Ave, opposite KFC, and omitted Fyshwick Markets & outside Kingston Railway Station.

The plan to build a Bus Transit lane on Canberra Ave, together with a park & ride facility on Tom Price St Fyshwick (Near DFO) was welcomed. The increasing population of Queanbeyan & Googong will mean more drive time congestion on Canberra Ave. Having a bike path on the Narrabundah side rather than keeping it on the Fyshwick side was considered problematic.

The response from TAMS Minister Shane Rattenbury was very encouraging. Mill Creek Bridge, the next phase of the bus transit way will be an expensive exercise. Maintenance & flood proofing the bridge will not be easy.   Mill Creek Bridge was washed away in 1947. The Federal Govt, under the NCA, should fund maintenance as it is a designated area.

Errol Kavanagh Memorial

Posted by ONCC | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 15-08-2013

In March 1993 a MiG 15 crashed where the Narrabundah Driving Range now is located. The pilot, Errol Kavanagh and a passenger were killed. There were over 100 children on the playing fields playing baseball. The investigation report is included.

The Errol Kavanagh Memorial has been vandalized and ONCC Inc is requesting TAMS restore or replace the memorial. It would appropriate for the memorial to have some text attached so that the public know something about the tragedy.
