The Clerk: The following petition has been lodged for presentation:
By Mr Hird, from 40 residents, requesting that the Assembly act in relation to the proposed development of block 5, section 46, O'Malley.
The terms of this petition will be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate Minister.
Dual Occupancy Development, O’Malley
The petition read as follows:
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory:
The petition of certain residents of the ACT draws to the attention of the Assembly:
the proposed development at Block 5 Section 46 O’Malley of a dual occupancy of some 340 square metres. We are concerned because:
. the size and scale of the proposed dual occupancy development is inconsistent with the character of the neighbourhood
. the area is characterised by single dwelling residences and developments such as that proposed represent a fundamental change about which residents have not been meaningfully consulted
. there will be significant loss of amenity to residents if this and future similar developments are to proceed
