The Council

The Woden Valley Community Council (WVCC) is a non-political, voluntary lobby group for the Woden Valley community.

We focus on a wide range of issues such as planning, community facilities and infrastructure, parks and open space, public transport, parking, education, the environment and health. Community Councils are officially recognised by the ACT Government and are consulted by government on issues affecting our communities.

Our monthly meeting is held on the first Wednesday of each month (Feb - Dec) at 7.30pm upstairs at the Hellenic Club in Matilda St, Phillip.

Membership is free and new members are always very welcome. Contact us at info@wvcc.org.au

Please note: WVCC is not a local government council. If you have enquiries relating to government issues, please contact the ACT Government via Canberra Connect - phone 13 22 81 or Online Customer Feedback.

Woden Green - Stage 3

Woden Green is a significant development east of the Woden Town centre bounded by Hindmarsh Drive and Callum Street.   Woden Valley Community Council has been consulted by the developers, Hindmarsh, over several years prior to and during construction.

 The architects, Scott Carver Pty Ltd, advise that "following recent upgrades to the cycleway, road infrastructure and pedestrian overpass, Hindmarsh plan to deliver the next stages in the Woden Green estate.  Comprised of a series of 3-storey residential buildings, underground parking, landscaping and recreational facilities, the development will be delivered over two separate stages.

 Hindmarsh have already been active in consulting with residents of the surrounding properties.  Following lodgement with ACTPLA the Development Applications will be available for public view and comment."
