Stapylton Street however, is expected to experience a 36% increase in traffic volume per day for the section north of Frankland Street and 56.3% for the section south of Frankland Street.
Minister, have you notified residents of Holder to expect traffic increases of over 56 per cent?
MS BERRY: The Public Housing Renewal Taskforce has met with the Holder community and the residents association a number of times regarding the development that will occur at Holder. Those discussions have included any issues that the community has raised around traffic.

Then the community will be able to engage in the process in the normal way.
MRS JONES: Minister, will any trees be removed from the Holder site as part of the development? Has geotechnical survey work been completed on the site and will you publish the results?

MRS JONES: My question is to the Minister for Housing and Suburban Development and it relates to the public housing development in Mawson. Minister, what has the government changed, in response to consultation with Mawson residents, on the original plan for public housing on this site? When will the final DA be lodged?
MS BERRY: There have been quite a number of changes that were made through conversations with the Mawson community. One of the changes included a change to the number of actual dwellings on that site from 11 to eight, and there are some changes round access to the site as well.
When I went to a public meeting up there a few months ago—Caroline Le Couteur was that meeting as well—the community were genuinely engaged and happy with the process so far. Woden Community Service was also at the meeting, as well as the
