In Lyneham ACT on “RECONSIDERATION-201935687-B...” at 3 De Burgh Street, Lyneham, ACT:

The existing houses are far less affordable than the townhouses will be. Even as "fixer uppers" they are well outside the price range of people on median Canberra incomes, or even two professional incomes. But assessing the affordability of the proposed townhouses might be worthwhile. If they're just going to be replaced with multi-million dollar units that's probably not helpful (there are already several of those in the inner north that are struggling to sell because they've been over-fitted out and over-priced). But as moderately priced units for young couples or families, that could be good.
