The site, known as Block 2 Section 20, is approximately 2112m2 and is on Community Facility-zoned land, which permits the development of supportive housing.

The site is bounded by Blakey Close and is parallel to Erindale Drive.

See map below.


On Friday 7 April 2017, the Public Housing Renewal Taskforce held a drop-in information session with the Tuggeranong community about the design of proposed public housing developments in their region.

The Taskforce has compiled the common issues raised by the community, see link to table below, and will provide a response to issues shortly.



The Taskforce is considering designs and layout options for six two-bedroom townhouses in a single-storey development. All dwellings will be Class C adaptable to support tenants living with disability and allow ageing in place.

Further information about the proposal, including why the site is considered suitable, architectural analysis and design concepts is available using the links below. This information will be available at the consultation sessions.

The Taskforce plans to lodge a DA with the ACT Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD) for the construction of six townhouses. Preliminary studies indicate the site is suitable for development and additional geotechnical studies will be completed before the DA is lodged.

If the DA is approved, construction is expected to start in the second half of 2017.

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.
