"Big Improver"

Charnwood is a suburb that is growing up fast. From problems in th 80's of having a high school located in the middle of a housing development that wasn't allowed fences you can imaging the crime with mostly govenrment housing tenants.

Luckily all this has changed over the past few years with the high school moved, yes, houses now have fences and alot of the government selling off public housing. Now no Canberra suburb is to have more than 5% public tenants. Charnwood was affordable with young professionals seizing the opportunity to enter the market and upgrade previously odinary accommodation.

No power lines, larger block sizes, many walking tracks, parks, sporting facilities and a new medical centre are all welcome additions as too is the improving shopping complex with Woolworths and a larger consumer base with new suburbs of Dunlop and Macgregor.

I would have to say Charnwood is Canberra's most under rated and affordable suburb
