Tuesday, 14 February 2017

Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Curtin draft master plan—petition 1-17

By Ms Le Couteur, from 1,950 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 Draft Master Plan for Curtin Group Centre was published in November 2015, following widespread consultation. The Community Engagement Report found that Curtin has a strong sense of community, and that the shopping centre's central courtyard should not be compromised with respect to sunlight. The final Master Plan has not yet been declared, but a development application has been lodged for a large, 24-metre, 6-storey development in the courtyard of the shopping centre of Curtin centre.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

Ensure that, in the absence of the final Master Plan, the Minister follows the terms and recommendations of the Draft Master Plan for Curtin Group Centre to assess the acceptability of any development applications in the Group Centre and, in particular, ensure that the amenity of sunlight in the central courtyard (Curtin Square) is maintained, and any buildings are limited to no more than 2 storeys on Curtin Square.

Traffic control measures for Ginninderra Drive—petition 2-17

By Mrs Kikkert, from 1,329 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 traffic control lights should be placed at the intersection of Tillyard Drive and Ginninderra Drive.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to upgrade the existing traffic control measures.
