Better Parking at Kingston Shops

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of, and requests the Assembly to:

  • Note the removal of the Eyre Street carpark, which has had a significant impact on local businesses, and
  • Note the potential future mixed-use developments that will also increase demand for parking, and;
  • Provide more public carparks in the Kingston shops precinct.

Beauty and Wellness Industry Survey

Now that restrictions are beginning to ease, Canberra has a unique opportunity to lead the nation by welcoming customers back in a safe and tailored approach.

Candice Burch, Canberra Liberals MLA

In this crucial time, the Canberra Liberals believe the key principle must be to keep staff and customers safe. The ACT Government must be looking for ways for businesses to safely reopen, not finding excuses to stay closed.

We want to see Canberra’s beauty, massage, wellness and personal services providers reopening as soon as possible.

One way to do this is for the ACT Government to allow beauty, massage and personal services to operate with the same limitations as hairdressers. This includes the usual hygiene practices now in place for all businesses, physical distancing where possible, and keeping a record of contact details for customers.

Please let us know if you support this approach, or have other suggestions.

Hospitality Industry Survey

Now that restrictions are beginning to ease, I believe Canberra has a unique opportunity to lead the nation – safely welcoming customers back to cafes, restaurants and bars with a practical and flexible approach.

Alistair Coe, Canberra Liberals Leader

Unfortunately, as many business owners have told me, the ACT Government’s blanket 10 person limit is not viable for many in Canberra’s hospitality sector.

In this crucial time, I believe the key principle must be to keep staff and customers safe – not a one-size-fits-all rule about maximum occupancy.

Three different approaches which I think would be better are:

  1. Requiring venues to implement a minimum of 1.5 metres between dining groups;
  2. Limiting the number of patrons (e.g. 10 or 20) in different areas; or
  3. Limiting patronage to a percentage of current occupancy limits (e.g. 30 per cent of current occupancy and building up to 100 per cent in coming months)

Please let me know if you support this approach, or have other suggestions.
