Townhouses for Gawler Crescent

ACT Planning and Land authority has invited comment on a plan to build a terrace of seven townhouses on the north side of Gawler Crescent, near the corner of Hopetoun Circuit. The townhouses would replace two existing houses with the two sections being consolidated. Plans show off-street parking for fourteen cars.

This is the first instance of density higher than dual-occupancy on the east side of Hopetoun Circuit. The blocks on both sides of Hopetoun Circuit between Adelaide Avenue and Stonehaven Crescent are already zoned to permit this kind of densification, subject to planning reviews.

We encourage residents to take up the invitation to view and comment on the development application, and to be in touch with Deakin Residents’ Association if you have concerns you would like to raise. Comments close on 12 June 2014.
