The site is bounded by Clive Steele Avenue to the north east, and Community Facility-zoned land for the rest of the site.

See map below.


In March 2017, the ACT Government announced this site for the development of replacement public housing.

The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce has considered feedback from the broader community, particularly from the drop-in consultation session held on Friday 7 April 2017. More information about community feedback can be found under project updates below.


The Development Application for the construction of 30 x two-bedroom adaptable dwellings has been approved. The Taskforce expects construction of the public housing development to be completed in early 2019, subject to weather conditions.

Yes. The whole of Block 15 Section 56 will be used for the proposed public housing development (noting that Block 14 and 16 will not form part of the development).

The site is subject to a ‘1 in 100 year flood’ level. This means that there is some flood risk associated with the nearby waterway. All buildings will have a finished floor level (FFL) that complies with regulatory requirements to protect buildings from flooding. Flood protection measures are proposed along the southern and eastern boundaries of Block 15 to further protect the site from flooding.

Tuggeranong Town Centre is approximately 1.6km from the site, and Erindale Shopping Centre – approximately 2km. An ACTION bus stop is 360m from the site, and there are frequent services (every 15 minutes in peak time and hourly off peak and weekends) to Tuggeranong, Isabella Plains, Chisholm Shops, Gowrie Shops, Erindale, Woden, and an express to City. Monash Primary School (P-6) is approximately 900 metres from the site and Wanniassa High School is approximately 2.7 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 proposed development found that there will be minimal impact on the operation of Clive Steele Avenue.
