    We feel that a re-think of the scale of the Curtin Square Development is needed. We have been Curtin residents for more then 30 years. Curtin Square and shopping facilities have changed over that time in keeping with social changes and community needs. The sunny open space enabled locals to meet, support each other and fundraise for community projects; it allowed art, aged, disabled and sporting groups to confront health and economic difference. This current development proposal is over-development impinging on the open, sunny space needed for community health and welfare. The height change creates a sunless windy square that mirrors the cold, unused Square at Woden. There is an over supply of apartments in Woden negating the need for another 50 over the shops. Parking is a major problem now before another 50 plus residents are added. Curtin Shopping Centre should remain mainly a social centre rather than becoming a residential area. It is a place for school children to gather in safety.
