Finally, active consultation on how we can improve the quality of water in Lake Tuggeranong. On Tuesday 28 July, the Basin Priority Project team held an Open House forum “designed to give community members the opportunity to explore and discuss options for water quality infrastructure development in Lake Tuggeranong”. It was an opportunity to meet the project team and give them additional ideas for water quality infrastructure and feedback on the options presented by consultants. There were 30 suggestions relating to various areas of the Tuggeranong Catchment as well as10 in-lake suggestions. The Tuggeranong Community Council (TCC) has put in a submission noting our preferences, which can be seen on our Website.

An increase in the number of footpaths and more education required for cyclists who use the shared pedestrian/cycle paths are some of the things that came out of the last TCC meeting when representatives from the Heart Foundation addressed the council about their recent survey which resulted in Tuggeranong being called the “fattest and laziest suburb in Canberra”. They advised that Tuggeranong overall showed a better result than the “National” average and other areas in Canberra with poor results were also on the fringes of Canberra, where people needed to use their cars to get to work etc. They stressed the importance of thirty minutes of exercise a day e.g. walking. Members commented on the lack of footpaths in many suburbs and the need for wider paths to assist both pedestrians and cyclists. A resident advised the meeting “I won’t walk on the paths anymore as I was almost run over by a cyclist”. The Council will continue to lobby for improved footpaths and continued education for cyclists.
