Campbell rates are already high and continue to rise by 10 per cent per year. However, the reasonable needs of Campbell residents continue to be ignored by this government. Residents of Campbell want the government to take positive action to remedy the situation.
These issues have been disregarded for a prolonged period, and Campbell residents are requesting the Assembly take immediate action and compel the lessee of the Campbell service station site to make the site safe and secure by reattaching the gates and maintaining the fencing, as promised in November 2014; keep the site safe through regular inspection and repairs; clean the site up and keep it clean; and bring forward a development application for the site as a matter of urgency.
I commend the petition to the Assembly and I would like to table an out-of-order petition with the other 770 signatures. I present the following paper:
Petition which does not conform with the standing orders—Campbell—Service station site—Mr Doszpot (770 signatures).
DR BOURKE (Ginninderra) (10.07): I move:
That this Assembly:
(1) notes the:
(a) ACT budget is for Canberra, the world’s most liveable city;
(b) budget demonstrates the contrast in the values between the ACT government and the commonwealth with continued investment in:
(i) health for Canberra, despite the commonwealth reneging on funding commitments;
(ii) education for Canberra, despite the commonwealth reneging on funding commitments;
(iii) urban renewal for Canberra, demonstrating the pride we feel in our community; and
(iv) addressing social inclusion and inequality for Canberra;
(c) ACT budget delivers a strong economy as well as prudent financial management in response to a range of shocks to the ACT community including addressing the legacy of Mr Fluffy Loose-fill Asbestos;
(d) slowing of job cuts in the Australian public service and the continued resilience of the private sector provides a sound base for a positive economic outlook;
