Editor's Notes

  1. RS Welcome to attendees Housekeeping
  2. RS - Introduce team
  3. RS Quick review of program Opportunity to Q&A at end – hold off questions until then Hope to wrap up by 7pm but attendees are welcome to stay afterwards if they have any specific questions to ask the project team
  4. RS For those who haven't had a chance to look at the posters Quick review of the existing site layout George Sautell House – 63 bed spaces 73 ILUs – in one, two and four storey buildings
  5. RS Sure all attendees are familiar with the site Photos of the style of development on site.
  6. RS Exception is the new apartment building Constructed 2005
  7. RS - Real mix of development
  8. RS Farrer and Goodwin at Farrer share a similar story Goodwin established at Farrer 10 years after the suburb was established At that time the cutting edge of design George Sautell House one of the ACT’s purpose designed aged care facilities Like Farrer, Goodwin has grown over time 2005 – new apartment building Taken advantage of its great location – 200m to Farrer Shops, 3.8km to Woden Both Farrer and Goodwin at Farrer are well loved, desirable places to be. BUT both reflect development patterns from 30 years ago Existing ILUs now 30 years old – sustainability, energy efficiency etc Rejuvenation required
  9. RS Some tid bits to set the scene While population has stayed very stable, the demographic has changed Aging population – the ACT is expected to have a significant growth in older age groups generally, but this is accentuated in Farrer Woden and Tuggeranong have been identified by the Government as key areas of retirement living need Most residents are in larger homes on large blocks Likely that there will be increasing demand for more manageable supported living options in coming years
  10. RS Site is zoned for community facility purposes. Broad zone enabling a wide range of uses, including retirement village and aged care. Both uses permitted by the lease. No GFA limit in the lease. Very flexible controls – allows considerable discretion for operational requirements Setbacks - 6m from a residential block boundary Height – two storeys within 30m of a residential boundary, four storeys elsewhere Greater height can be approved subject to compliance with criteria, addressing The desired character A scale appropriate to use Reasonable separation from adjoining developments Reasonable privacy and solar access for dwellings and their private open space on adjoining residential blocks No subdivision/unit titling permitted
  11. RS Review of site within its context Predominately surrounding by residential development Separated by road reserves and flood ways Sloping topography – dwellings on Marshall Street set above the site Plan illustrates the Territory Plan height controls – everything within black dotted line can go to 4 storeys as rule compliant
  12. RS -Hand over to AMC
  13. RS Example of opportunities Poor visibility into/out of the site from its most prominent view point No contribution to the streetscene
