PETITION

The Clerk: The following petition has been lodged for presentation:

By Mr Connolly, from 126 residents, requesting that the Assembly create landlord-tenant legislation that addresses fair rent, lease agreements and security of tenure.

The terms of this petition will be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate Minister.

Landlord and Tenant Legislation

The petition read as follows:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

The petition of residents and the lessees of Campbell Shopping Centre draws to the attention of the Assembly the following concerns:

.          That the livelihood of the lessees of the Campbell Shopping Centre and the continuation of this local shopping centre, including Pharmacy, Supermarket and Restaurant, is being threatened by the actions of the landlord.

.          The petitioners draw your attention to the fact that the pharmacy services the St. Vincent de Paul Aged Home and the general ageing population in Campbell.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

          Create Landlord/Tenant legislation that addresses fair rent, lease agreements and security of tenure.

Petition received.
