Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Planning—residential apartments—petition No 12-14

By Mr Corbell, from 140 residents:

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

The following residents of the ACT draws to the attention of the Assembly the social and community problems associated with allowing short-term accommodation in residential apartment complexes. These include behavioural impact of short-term guests on residents, compromised security and inability of residents to enjoy their own home due to crowd sourced noise and antisocial behaviour.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to review legislation to allow residential apartments to remain as people's homes not hotels, motels and other short-term accommodation models.

By Ms Lawder from two residents:

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

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Please ensure that the ACT government does not sign an agreement with Ratch to supply energy to the ACT, noting the lack of support for it by the Collector and surrounding community who will be directly impacted.
