The Assembly met at 10 am.
MR SPEAKER (Mr Rattenbury) took the chair, made a formal recognition that the Assembly was meeting on the lands of the traditional custodians, and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Ms Porter, from 729 residents:
Planning—Hawker—petition No 109
The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that development of Blocks 8 and 10, Section 34 Hawker, will adversely affect parking for the Hawker Group Centre.
You petitioners therefore request the Assembly to ensure that any future development on Blocks 8 and 10, Section 34 Hawker isn’t at the expense of adequate parking for the Hawker Group Centre.
