Project update – October
Over the past month the CSIRO Ginninderra project team has been busy developing and updating the plans that will enable the latest science and innovation to be delivered at scale across the future urban initiative at Ginninderra.
Some of our team members have been investigating alternative energy options and the infrastructure needed to roll them out.
To help bring together the ingredients of an exemplar urban estate of the future, our social scientists have been looking into the prevailing attitudes to urban growth and development as well as examining and benchmarking community wellbeing in the suburbs surrounding the Ginninderra site. We published an article on this: Understanding community attitudes and wellbeing’ with interdisciplinary social scientist, Dr Rod McCrea.
As we move into the final stages of the multi-stage process of procuring a joint development partner we are also continuing to engage regularly and work with a wide range of community, conservation, government and industry stakeholders.
