Major Googong planning milestone achieved


Friday, 1 October, 2010

Planning for the new township of Googong is progressing to schedule with a key milestone—the township's Development Control Plan—approved by Queanbeyan City Council last night.

CIC Australia, the company responsible for the vision behind Googong, has been working closely with council to progress the project and to ensure all aspects of the township's planning are well considered and thought through.

The Development Control Plan sets out Queanbeyan Council's objectives and controls for subdivision, landscape and housing for Googong, and allows it to be developed in keeping with CIC Australia's vision and masterplan for the township.

“Googong is a special new place for the Canberra region—a new, totally self-contained township that will set the benchmark for urban development in the region,” says CIC’s Project Director Mark Attiwill.

“For that reason, the planning and thinking behind this project is paramount, so we are working very closely with Queanbeyan City Council to make sure every aspect is thoroughly examined.”

In 2011, expect to see more major milestones tumble as the project’s development gets closer to kick-off. An information seminar will be held in the first half of the year to provide an update on the vision for Googong, as well as details of our first release, which is planned for the middle of 2011.
