    Excellent proposal and a process that should be replicated in more ACT Housing properties that have been allowed to degrade, or have reached the end of their viability as adequate housing to modern much less special needs. This includes many properties built before 1990.

    Do NOT sell off public housing - revamp it like this proposal!

    I support the replacement of the 9-11 Harris Place houses to provide modern supportive housing.

    But this proposal replaces two houses with five multi-occupancy units in a small dead-end street. Increased traffic and lack of street parking will have a detrimental effect on street amenity and landscape. Waste collection trucks already have difficulty getting access to kerbside bins.

    The significant excavations will also threaten protected trees on the boundary of the property. All these objections could be addressed by building less units with a smaller overall footprint.
