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