opportunity in the heart of Gungahlin. Most people living in Gungahlin leave each day to go to work, but Winyu House ensures there is a public service presence in our region, just as there is in Canberra’s other town centres.

As Gungahlin grows, there are other opportunities for how our urban core develops appropriately. For example, I am currently running a survey to find out what people think of the future of Hibberson Street. Some people would like to see it closed to traffic permanently. Others think it should be a shared zone similar to Bunda Street, closed only during the day or perhaps one way. Whatever the outcome, it is clear people would like to see some change on this thoroughfare now that it is busier and livelier. It is clear people want to see more feet on Hibberson Street. Changing Hibberson Street shows that urban renewal does not have to mean knocking down buildings and starting again. (Time expired.)

Discussion concluded.

Legislative Assembly delegation to Taiwan

DR BOURKE (Ginninderra) (4.30): Last month, I was given the opportunity to participate in an ACT Legislative Assembly delegation to Taiwan, engaging in cultural and economic exchanges. As many in the ACT would know, I have a keen interest in Indigenous issues, and this shaped my desire to meet prominent Taiwanese Indigenous people, develop cultural links and see what opportunities there are for mutual learning and cooperation between the Indigenous peoples of Australia and Taiwan.
