Shared Paths Survey

Canberrans make great use of our city’s wide network of shared paths. We want to hear from you about how you use these paths, and what can be done to improve them.

Street Sweeping and Fallen Leaves

We live in a great city and one of the best things about Canberra is how green we are. There is no doubt that we all love having lots of trees in our suburbs and in our neighbourhoods. However, with trees come falling leaves, particularly during the autumn and winter months.

Falling leaves which are not swept up regularly not only cause a trip hazard on our footpaths and roads impacting on the safety of pedestrians (especially older Canberrans and residents with children or pets) but also make their way into our waterways, causing a build-up of material which can lead to excess blue/green algae in our lakes.

The Canberra Liberals want to hear from you about the current arrangements for street sweeping in your neighbourhood.

As the law currently stands, landlords who have tenants that have not paid rent are required to apply to ACAT to have them evicted. ACAT can choose not to evict a tenant if they reasonably believe that the tenant will pay the rent as it becomes due. In this case, ACAT can order a conditional termination and possession order, which means that if the tenant fails to pay rent in the future the landlord automatically has the right to evict the tenant.

The proposed changes will mean that a landlord is still required to apply to ACAT to have a tenant evicted, but rather than order an eviction, ACAT will make a payment order requiring the tenant to pay what is due. Should the tenant fail to pay this, the landlord can apply again to ACAT within 60 days for an eviction. At this point, ACAT can either; order an eviction, confirm the payment order or make another payment order.

William Hovell Drive Duplication

William Hovell Drive is a car park for Canberra’s morning commuters. For too long, West Belconnen residents have had to put up with long traffic queues and delays on this road, while ACT Labor ignores the problem.

Sign the petition below to call on the government to duplicate William Hovell Drive between Coppins Crossing Road and Drake Brockman Drive.

Additional Questions

ACT Public Hospital Experience

The ACT Government spends more money on public hospitals per person than any other jurisdiction but the number of patients receiving access to services is lagging.

The Canberra Liberals believe effective and reliable health services are a basic function of government.
