Tuesday, 21 March 2017

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

Petitions

The following petition and e-petition were lodged for presentation:

Gold Creek Village development—petitions 6-17 and 3-17

By Ms Le Couteur, from 1,417 and 161 residents, respectively:

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 proposed KFC DRIVE THROUGH at the Gold Creek Village Shopping Centre does not fit with the character of the Village. The Village includes several heritage listed buildings and the ambience of the Village will be dramatically impacted upon by the construction of the KFC situated at one of two entry points to O'Hanlon Place".

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Stop the proposed development of KFC. It has taken over 30 years to develop the character of the Village and once KFC neon signage takes a prominent position at one end of O'Hanlon Place, the character of the Village will diminish.
