Thursday, 26 September 2002
MR SPEAKER (Mr Berry) took the chair at 10.30 am and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.
Block 12 Section 2 Belconnen
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Ms Tucker , from 121 residents.
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory
The petition of certain members of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly the inappropriate development on Block 12 Section 2 Belconnen, at the intersection of Coulter Drive and Nettlefold Street, and the threat to its magnificent remnant Yellow Box/Red Gum woodland.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the ACT Government to withdraw the block from development and preserve the area as public open space.
The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
