MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (5.28): I move the motion standing in my name on the notice paper:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) that there is an increasing number of empty shopfronts in Civic, especially in the City Walk area;

(b) the increasing dominance of the Canberra Centre, including a development proposal for a further 11,000m2 of retail space;

(c) the centre's design enables people to park and visit all wings without having to go outside of the mall;

(d) the anecdotal understanding that Canberra Centre owner, QIC, has been purchasing further retail space in the block bounded by Garema Place, City Walk and Petrie Plaza;

(e) public concern that an expanded Canberra Centre will take business away from shops outside the mall;

(f) that the only Master Plans for Civic are those for City West, and for the QIC precinct, not for the whole of Civic;

(g) current small business impact assessment is inadequate in assessing impacts on small businesses, especially given that the proponent appoints the assessment consultant;
