Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Lanyon Valley—library—petition No 118

By Ms Bresnan, from 79 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: People living in Lanyon and the surrounding suburbs only have limited access to a mobile library and the library in the Tuggeranong Town Centre. A Library in Lanyon would provide an important service and resource for the community, including older people and families in the area, particularly for outer suburbs such as Conder, Banks, Gordon, Theodore and Calwell, and also for Tharwa.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Provide for the establishment of a library in the Lanyon Valley.

Planning—Pitch and Putt Golf Course—petition Nos 119 and 121

By Mr Rattenbury and Mr Smyth, from 13 and 1,456 residents respectively:

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: Development Application 201119563 proposes a change of use to the land now used as a pitch and putt course in Woden which, if agreed, will result in the loss of a valued sporting and recreational facility that is used by thousands of Canberrans of all ages. It has become very important in meeting the needs of the ageing community and is valued by many more for its ambience as a green oasis in an area that is being rapidly urbanised.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: take such action as may be necessary to retain the current sole purpose of the lease as a par 3 gold course (pitch and putt), comprising 18 holes and associated facilities, in order to secure this site for community sport and recreation use into the future.

Alexander Maconochie Centre—drugs—petition No 120

By Mr Hanson, from 234 residents:
