for implementation under a future capital works program. The minister also noted that Transport Canberra and City Services will continue to monitor and take action as necessary on other roads in the area. Given the minister’s commitments and the potential budget allocation, the committee will not be inquiring further into the matters raised in petition 13-21.
Petition 24-21, concerning housing development on the Federal Golf Club course, was received by the Assembly on 8 August 2021 and referred to the committee under standing order 99A. As signatories to petition 24-21, 1,527 residents of the ACT requested the Assembly to reject amendments to the Territory Plan that would enable housing development on the site of the Federal Golf Club course.
The committee notes that, in his response to the petition, the Minister for Planning and Land Management said the ACT government has undertaken considerable community consultation and environmental studies in developing the integrated plan for Red Hill Nature Reserve and surrounds. Stakeholders informed the development of the plan, and the government undertook extensive consultation on the plan in draft form prior to its finalisation. The minister also noted that the plan received strong community support during the engagement processes, promotes a compact and efficient city, provides for protection of the ecological values, potentially increases the area of the Red Hill Nature Reserve, provides housing choice in the local community and retains an 18-hole golf course. The committee considers the government response to be satisfactory and will therefore not be inquiring further into the matters raised in petition 24-21.
Two petitions concerning parking in Campbell were received by the Assembly on 6 October 2021 and referred to the committee under standing order 99A. As signatories to petitions 21-21 and 40-21, 630 residents of the ACT requested that the Assembly call on the government to conduct a whole-of-suburb review of the parking and traffic problems in Campbell, with a view to implementing a parking and traffic management plan for the whole suburb.
The committee notes that, in his response to the petitions, the Minister for Transport and City Services said that Campbell had experienced considerable growth in recent years, with travel patterns and parking behaviours changing, and that Transport Canberra and City Services will undertake a traffic study for the Campbell precinct. In light of the minister’s commitment, the committee will not be inquiring further into the matters raised in petitions 21-21 and 40-21.
