Retirement Villages Bill 2011—petition No 131

By Mr Corbell, from 5 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

This petition of residents in independent living accommodation in retirement villages in the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly the fact that no legislation exists for the proper regulation of Retirement Villages in the Australian Capital Territory and furthermore: the Australian Capital Territory is the only Jurisdiction in Australia where this situation exists.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to expedite the passage of the Private Member's Bill, "The Retirement Villages Bill 2011", through the ACT Legislative Assembly as soon as possible.

Housing—Northbourne Flats—petition No 132

By Ms Bresnan, from 63 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 the residents of Northbourne Flats are concerned about the lack of information regarding redevelopment of the Flats and object to being moved from our homes, family, friends, support networks and places of employment.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to inform residents of Northbourne Flats promptly as to what the redevelopment will mean for them and to:

1. rehouse in the new development (to be called Wave) all residents wishing to stay; or,

2. rehouse residents in areas and a style of accommodation that satisfies the tenants requirements, is of a standard equal to or better than their current accommodation, and minimises the potential for social dislocation.

We note that many of the residents are vulnerable individuals and ask the Assembly to ensure that no residents are disadvantaged as a result of the redevelopment of Northbourne Flats.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petitions would be recorded in Hansard and referred to the appropriate ministers for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petitions were received.
