“The strongest opposition to the proposal stemmed from the assertion that it was too tall for the location and represented over development of the site. In response, two storeys have been removed from the middle layers of the building. This retains the ground floor commercial uses and the two storey roof top terraces, but removes two floors of apartments. The number of dwellings proposed is reduced by 49, from 219 to 170. Changes to the basement are not proposed, resulting in a generous supply of parking for the remaining units. Other minor changes have also been made to address […] comments [from ACT government directorates].”
The 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Gungahlin Community Council Inc., and November public meeting, will be held in the Eastlake Gungahlin Club, 51 Hinder Street, Gungahlin commencing at 6.30pm on Wednesday 9 November 2022. The AGM will be held first.
The AGM and meeting will be face-to-face. As usual the meeting will be live streamed on Facebook via the GCC Facebook page.
Persons wishing to attend the AGM are strongly encouraged to sign up as a GCC member (it’s FREE!) as only registered members can vote in the event of an election for an executive position.

Annual General Meeting
All executive committee positions will be declared vacant and nominations are now open for the office-bearer positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Officer and up to five other Committee Members.
The GCC is a volunteer organisation that advocates for and on behalf of the district of Gungahlin as outlined in What We Do.
The GCC organises and hosts monthly public meetings. The GCC executive also meets once per month and much of the business of the executive is undertaken online through email, social media, our web site and other online tools. We engage with a wide range of ACT government agencies, MLA’s and Ministers, and members of the executive participate in a number of forums to better interact with the Gungahlin community. The GCC executive roles require a reasonable time commitment. The work of the GCC is captured in our newsletters and annual reports (eg. 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018).
If you know someone who may be interested in the work of the Gungahlin Community Council, please pass this information on to them.
You must be a registered GCC member to nominate for an executive committee position (signup as a member). A person is not eligible to nominate to be an Office-Bearer of the Council if the person is;
(a) an Executive Officer of a registered political party; (b) a person employed by a registered political party; (c) a registered candidate for a forthcoming election; or (d) an elected member of the ACT Legislative Assembly or any Parliament or a person who has been pre-selected or has nominated for a forthcoming election to any of the aforementioned bodies; or (e) an office bearer in a commercial or industrial lobby group registered with the Federal or ACT Government.
6. Appointment of Public Officer 7. Election of office bearers & general committee members for 2022-23 8. Amendments to the Association Rules (Constitution)
The existing Gungahlin Community Council (GCC) Association Rules are not sufficiently explicit regarding our non-profit status. As a consequence, the GCC is not able to secure discounted (free) services from some vendors (including Google). The proposed change will allow us to continue to benefit from free and discounted non-profit costs from Google, and other organisations. It also more accurately reflects our nature.
The GCC members are invited to pass a Special Resolution to include the below two insertions to the GCC Association Rules (Constitution):
Not-for-profit clause, inserted as 32.3 “The assets and income of the organisation shall be applied solely in furtherance of its above-mentioned objects and no portion shall be distributed directly or indirectly to the members of the organisation except as bona fide compensation for services rendered or expenses incurred on behalf of the organisation.”
Dissolution clause, inserted as 38.3 “In the event of the organisation being dissolved, the amount that remains after such dissolution and the satisfaction of all debts and liabilities shall be transferred to another organisation with similar purposes which is not carried on for the profit or gain of its individual members.”
