To the Speaker and members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that the Department of Urban Services is intending to release and sell a block of land, Section 79, Block 3 adjacent to Giralang Primary School, on the west corner of Canopus Street and Menkar Close. These residents also note that there is as yet scant information on the impact on the environment of the school of building multi-storey residential dwellings on this site.

consult widely with the school users and other community members on this proposed sale and any likely development.
