To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.
The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly: that Tuggeranong Homestead and Environs (Richardson Section 450) is of great historical, architectural, cultural and aesthetic significance, declared by the Australian Heritage Commission to be worth keeping for present and future generations.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Prevent any residential development on the Tuggeranong Homestead and Environs site, and ensure that any other type of development is in strict accordance with heritage protection guidelines.
MR MOORE: Madam Speaker, I ask for leave to present a petition which does not conform with standing orders as it does not address the Assembly nor contain a request.
