Campbelltown. $3.7m to 'de-Radburn' estate
Plans are underway to demolish all 88 townhouses in a failed urban design experiment which was implemented in a Rosemeadow estate in the 1970s. A spokesperson for the Minister for Housing, David Borger, said a $3.7 million plan would “de-Radburn” the townhouses, with work to commence in early March. The American Radburn design for public housing had backyards facing the street and the fronts facing each other over common yards. The estate was the focus of recent street violence.
