The ACT Government has announced it will include an aged care facility in a proposed village centre for its newest region, Molonglo Valley.
The site will cater for both independent living units and aged care beds, said the ACT Government in a media release.
The aged care facility will be one of four development sites for the Coombs and Wright Village Design and Place Framework.
“The ACT Government has listened to the Molonglo Valley community and their desire to see more retail, hospitality and community-focused facilities in the area. The Village Framework will create a buzzing suburban core and will be accompanied by a significant investment in offsite works, delivered by the Suburban Land Agency,” said Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, Yvette Berry.
