Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation.

Platypus (Ngunnawal) shopping centre

By Mr Cornwell , from 232 residents:

To The Speaker and the 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 the MOTOR VEHICLE PARKING ARRANGEMENTS at the Platypus (Ngunnawal) Shopping Centre is in need of an urgent upgrade. This is due to the lack of adequate parking for vehicles that park at this Centre; thereby affecting both Customers and Merchants. There is also a need for the installation of a MAIL (post) BOX at this Shopping Centre.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Minister for Urban Services, to take all the necessary steps to have motor vehicle parking arrangements expanded. Also requests the Minister to make representations to Australia Post to have a mail (post) box installed at the Platypus (Ngunnawal) Shopping Centre.

Garran shopping centre

By

Mr Cornwell , from 101 residents:

To The Speaker and the 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 there is an URGENT need to evaluate the VEHICLE PARKING ARRANGEMENTS at the Garran Shopping Centre.

Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly call on the Minister for Urban Services to direct the Department's Traffic Engineers to undertake a full assessment of vehicle parking arrangements, present and future, at this Shopping Centre. The current lack of vehicle parking spaces has been caused by the introduction of a Medical Centre, at the GARRAN SHOPPING CENTRE.

The clerk having announced that the terms of the petitions would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petitions were received.
