Health and Community Wellbeing—Standing Committee

Report 1

MR DAVIS (Brindabella) (10.29): I present the following report:

Health and Community Wellbeing—Standing Committee—Report 1—Annual and Financial Reports 2019-2020; Appropriation Bill 2020-2021 and Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2020-2021, dated 9 April 2021, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I move:

That the report be noted.

From the short time that I have been a member of this place—six months—I have no doubt that I speak for other members as well when I say that health and community wellbeing is the number one issue on which community members make representations to me in my office. I would like to thank and particularly acknowledge Mrs Elizabeth Kikkert and Mr Michael Pettersson for their membership of this committee and the work put into the 35 recommendations made to government to support the health and community wellbeing outcomes of members of the Canberra community, as well as our secretary, Andrew Snedden. We look forward to receiving the government’s responses to our 35 recommendations and continuing our work to advocate for health and community wellbeing outcomes for the people of Canberra.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

I move:

That the report be noted.

Madam Speaker, I have a few more words to say than other people have said, so I might try to cut it short. First of all, we had a really useful and informative inquiry. We had a really broad remit across a lot of areas that cut across big issues for Canberra—planning, housing, sport and recreation, transport, city services, and the City Renewal Authority. We covered a lot of issues in those areas.

We considered many issues and made recommendations about whether future residential developments would be connected to gas, about the current review that is going on with the Territory Plan and the ACT planning framework and how that is
