Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 1 Hansard (8 December) . . Page.. 3970 ..
MR CORBELL (continuing):
People should be allowed to appeal against that because they may take a different view. If it is affecting someone's personal amenity, if it is affecting the amenity of a neighbourhood, of a street or of a suburb, then it is appropriate to allow a third party appeal.
Mr Speaker, the Labor Party will be supporting Ms Tucker's amendment in relation to a third party appeal for these areas because it is workable and it provides a right that is currently denied to residents to have a say on what sort of suburb they live in into the future. I challenge any member in this place to deny residents in those suburbs that right. They live in them, they enjoy their amenity, and they want to see the amenity improved and enhanced, not degraded.
Debate (on motion by Mr Wood ) adjourned.
MR RUGENDYKE (11.53): I move:
Page 2, line 1, omit the definition, substitute the following new definitions:
" 'burnout means-
(a) in relation to a motor vehicle other than a motor cycle-operate the vehicle in a way that causes the vehicle to undergo sustained loss of traction by 1 or more of the driving wheels; or
- in relation to a motor cycle-operate the motor cycle in a way that causes the motor cycle to undergo sustained loss of traction by the driving wheel.
'prohibited substance , in relation to the burnout of a motor vehicle, means-
(a) petrol, oil, diesel fuel or any other flammable liquid; or
(b) any other substance that increases the risk of death, injury or damage to property (including damage to the surface of any road or to any prescribed traffic control device) from the burnout.'.".
