Public areas—maintenance

MR SESELJA (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (8.26): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) the important role that the ACT Government:

(i) has in maintaining the look of Canberra; and

(ii) should be playing within local communities to maintain streetscapes, local shops and to provide basic services to the community;

(b) the importance of local shopping precincts to local communities within the ACT;

(c) the Government's bungled program to refurbish local shops; and

(d) the significant impact that delays and poor timing of this bungled program has had on small businesses at local shopping centres, especially outdoor cafes; and

(2) calls on the Government to:

(a) immediately:

(i) reassess the timing of its bungled program to refurbish local shops to ensure that it has a minimal impact on business; and

(ii) address basic maintenance issues with local services and within community facilities and local shops, such as lifting and uneven pavers, inadequate and broken lighting and graffiti; and
