In Ainslie ACT on “PROPOSAL FOR SUPPORTIVE...” at 11 Rutherford Crescent, Ainslie, ACT:

Romany Steele commented

This intrusive structure will make it difficult for children to play at the park. To be honest (and I don't think anyone really wants say this), putting ten people/families with social problems in a tiny area is not the recipe for a happy environment. Those people will have friends with similar problems and soon you will create a small area of despair where formally there was a park. It would be better to spread people who are disadvantaged evenly throughout the community where they don't feel they have a stigma attached to their place of dwelling. Otherwise you are in effect dumping them in one place and they will know it too. No one wins here. This place was always designed for children and it should stay that way it's one of the treasures of Ainslie. Give it back to the children, our future.
