ACT public housing overhaul to go ahead despite move by Heritage Council to list buildings, Chief Minister says


A major overhaul of Canberra’s public housing stock will go ahead despite the fact that a large chunk of the flats listed for demolition have just been listed by the ACT Heritage Council, the Territory’s Chief Minister says.

Chief Minister Andrew Barr outlined a new urban renewal project today, which would see 11 public housing developments, primarily in Canberra’s inner north, demolished and replaced.

The first block to go would be the Owen Flats in Lyneham on Northbourne Avenue.
