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.
The following petitions were lodged for presentation.
Platypus (Ngunnawal) shopping centre
By Mr Cornwell, from 330 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 up grade. 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 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 arrangement expanded. Also requests the Minister to make representations to Australia Post to have a mail (post) box installed at the Platypus (Ngunnawal) Shopping Centre.
By Ms Dundas, from 1,661 residents:
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that local people want access to cheaper groceries.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to pass legislation allowing ALDI Supermarket to build a supermarket next to Belconnen Markets.
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.
