Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (8 June) . .
No legislation will make everyone happy, but this bill is fair and would have made life much easier for unit owners who want to do the right thing with regard to water consumption and want to pay a fair price. Unlike the arrogant Labor-Greens government, the Canberra Liberals care about these people and their cost of living, and we will continue to do all we can to ensure that Canberrans are not unfairly charged for services that they are unable to use.
That this bill be agreed to in principle.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 7: Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Ms Lawder Mr Smyth Mr Wall
Noes 8: Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Mr Corbell Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Mr Hinder Mr Rattenbury
Question so resolved in the negative.
MR WALL (Brindabella) (3.43): I move:
That this Assembly:
(a) the financial impact on Phillip Traders as a result of the proposed expansion of paid parking made by the ACT Labor/Green Government;
(b) the lack of consultation with business owners and other stakeholders in this decision;
(c) the need for good access to parking with reasonable time restrictions to allow for proprietors and staff as well as customer turnover;
(d) the neglect of green spaces and overall amenity by the ACT Labor/Green Government despite premium commercial rates being paid by small businesses;
(e) all day paid parking has the biggest effect on the lowest income earners including apprentices;
(f) implementation of paid parking across Phillip fails to address the need for a diverse range of parking options; and
(g) the Canberra Liberals' commitment to working with the Phillip Business Community to achieve the best outcomes of parking availability; and
