Tuesday, 9 December 2003
MR SPEAKER (Mr Berry) took the chair at 10.30 am, made a formal recognition that the Assembly was meeting on the lands of the traditional owners, and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.
Development of Lake Ginninderra foreshores
The following petition was lodged for presentation:
by Mr Stefaniak, from 100 residents:
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 there is an urgent need to oppose the development application 20032016, block 80, section 65, Emu Bank, Belconnen which is located on the foreshores of Lake Ginninderra.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Minister for Planning to reject this application as this development will bring residential dwellings within 9 metres of Lake Ginninderra and will cause a number of planning, environmental and other local problems, which are contrary to good planning for the foreshores of Lake Ginninderra and its environment.
The clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
