Tuggeranong Town Centre is approximately 1.2km from the site and the Erindale Shopping Centre is approximately 2km from the site. The site is 170 metres from an ACTION bus stop – 170m with frequent services (every 15 minutes in peak time and hourly off peak and weekends) to Tuggeranong, Erindale, Isabella Plains, Gowrie Shops, Chisholm Shops, Woden, and an express to City. Monash Primary (P-6) is approximately 900 metres from the site and Wanniassa High School is approximately 2.2 kilometres from the site.

As part of the public housing renewal program, many tenants will be supported to move home.

Housing ACT and the Public Housing Renewal Taskforce work closely with all public housing tenants to identify the most appropriate replacement housing for each of them, and to develop individual support plans. Some tenants may choose to stay in their current community or to move to an area which better matches their needs and preferences.

The new public housing will be available for all eligible tenants, and will not be limited to those who are moving from the current multi-unit properties nor people with a disability or the elderly.

The Site Investigation Report which was undertaken for the site states that the current road network has adequate capacity for the proposed development.
