By Mr Pratt, from 1,022 residents:

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 ActewAGL, a Territory Owned Corporation, is proposing to develop Block 1671 of the Tuggeranong District, adjacent to the suburbs of Macarthur and Fadden, to construct a facility titled "Canberra Technology City", under the submitted Development Application No. 200704152.

The facility will contain a Natural Gas Power Station, high voltage power lines, data storage space and a high pressure gas pipeline. The magnitude of the social and environmental impact on local residents remains unknown and this facility will be located as close as 600 metres from residential areas.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

2) Undertake to find alternative locations within the ACT that would be suitable for such a large industrial facility.
