Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 2 Hansard (17 February) . . Page.. 347..


Tuesday, 17 February 2015

MADAM SPEAKER (Mrs Dunne) took the chair at 10 am, made a formal recognition that the Assembly was meeting on the lands of the traditional owners, and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

Petition

The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Doszpot, from 187 residents:

Planning—Narrabundah—petition No 1-15

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 Omnibus Draft Variation proposes to change the zoning of two vacant blocks in Jerrabomberra Ave, Narrabundah, Section 34 Blocks 12 & 13.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to maintain the existing zoning of CZ6 for these blocks. Allowing RZ3 on these particular leases will adversely affect the operations of other lease holders in this section. The surrounding Clubs, Veterinary Centre and Sporting facilities need the protection of CZ6 zoning to allow the potential of their businesses to expand and grow into the future. Keeping the CZ6 zoning will also provide the opportunity for future leaseholders of the vacant blocks to use the land for purposes more compatible to the rest of Section 34, Narrabundah.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petition was received.

MR DOSZPOT (Molonglo), by leave: The petition signed by Canberra residents this morning, as presented, draws to the attention of the Assembly the omnibus draft variation plan that is proposed to change the zoning of two vacant blocks in Jerrabomberra Avenue, Narrabundah, being blocks 12 and 13 of section 34 Narrabundah.

The petitioners are requesting that the Assembly maintain the existing zoning of the CZ6 for these two blocks, stating that allowing RZ3 on these particular leases will adversely affect the operations of other leaseholders in this section. It is residents' view that the surrounding clubs, veterinary centre and sporting facilities need the protection of CZ6 zoning to allow the potential for their businesses to expand and grow into the future. Keeping the CZ6 zoning will also provide the opportunity for future leaseholders of the vacant blocks to use the land for purposes that are more compatible with the rest of section 34 Narrabundah.
