DRA Committee Meeting, 6th February 2014

Most of the issues discussed at the February meeting are recorded separately and in more detail in items listed to the right of this page.

ACT Government

Committee discussed outcomes of the meeting with Minister Corbell on Wednesday 5th February. A letter of appreciation has been forwarded to the Minister.
Committee discussed next steps in working with the Inner South Canberra Community Council and the ACT Government to develop more appropriate precinct codes, with Deakin and Yarralumla as a pilot.

Concessional leases

Committee discussed rising community concern about how concessional leases are handled. A paper on the subject to the ACT Government has been drafted and is under consideration.

Latrobe Park

Canberra Girls Grammar School has expressed interest in more regular use of the sports field in Latrobe Park, with some possible development of facilities primarily for use of the school.

DRA organised a meeting with a representative of Canberra Girls Grammar with respect to future uses of Latrobe Park. Key objective is that the Deakin community needs have priority in considering the future of the park. The school and DRA are to separately develop proposals for further discussion, hoping for a mutually satisfactory plan for Latrobe Park.
