North Canberra Community Council

The North Canberra Community Council (NCCC) is the officially recognised peak community body representing the interests and concerns of the residents and businesses within the Inner North region of Canberra. You can access their latest newsletter on their website – https://www.northcanberra.org.au/category/home/. They will be holding their Annual General Meeting, on Wednesday 17 November 2021.

New tables at the shops

In June this year, the ACT Government provided an additional table on the lawns at the shops. They have now fixed the new table near the walkway that goes to the bus stop on Madigan Street.

But no more tables in our parks

Following the HCA submission to the 2020-21 ACT Budget consultation process, tables were provided in the Gilruth and Bragg Street parks. The HCA provided a submission (no.78) into the 2021-22 ACT Budget consultation. This submission requested the provision of tables in Tyron St- Mackenzie St, French St and Caldwell St parks, and at the northern end of the Hackett Oval under the trees near the carpark. Unfortunately, our request has not received funding. We will try again next year. To see all the budget submissions go to https://www.budgetconsultation.act.gov.au/input-received
