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.

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.

Plans to redevelop Gold Creek Golf Course

Image credit: Canberra Times

The Canberra Liberals want to hear your thoughts on the proposed changes to the Gold Creek golf course.

The owners of the Gold Creek golf course are currently developing plans as part of the ‘re:imagine Gold Creek’ project. The changes include reducing the size of the golf course which may affect many residents in the area.

The Canberra Liberals are concerned about the proposal and believe the golf course is vitally important to the fabric of the local community.

More information on the proposal can be found in this Canberra Times article.

We encourage you to tell us your thoughts here and make a submission through the ‘re:imagine’ Gold Creek website.

Alcohol at the Multicultural Festival

The ACT Government has disallowed community stalls from serving alcohol at the 2018 National Multicultural Festival in Canberra. For decades, foreign beers and other drinks have been a feature of the Festival. Not only will this decision impact on the enjoyment of many attendees, it will also take away a major source of fundraising for dozens of migrant community groups.

Send a message to the Government that they’ve gone too far and the right for community groups to sell alcohol at the Festival should be restored.

Sign the petition below.

Gungahlin Schools

There are tremendous enrolment pressures facing schools in Gungahlin, particularly in Franklin and Harrison. Many families are being turned away from local schools with parents being told to enrol their children elsewhere.

The 2016 Census data showed Gungahlin was the second-fastest growing region in Australia, however there has not been an appropriate level of investment by the ACT Government in school infrastructure to meet new population demands.

The Canberra Liberals recognise that there are insufficient places available in local schools, and through this petition are calling for action from the ACT Government to address the shortage for the benefit of the Gungahlin community.

Organised Crime Legislation

Over the past months in the ACT there has been increased Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMCG) activity resulting in a series of violent incidents that have endangered our community.  Much of this is a result of the ACT Government’s failure to introduce ‘anti-consorting’ laws consistent with those in NSW.

The Canberra Liberals are preparing to table laws along the lines of those in NSW in order to stop the ACT being a ‘safe haven’ for OMCG violence. You can view the proposed laws here: http://www.legislation.act.gov.au/ed/db_56598/default.asp

I fear that without taking this action it is a matter of time before someone is injured or killed.

I am keen to make sure that this legislation is effective and has appropriate safeguards and I value community input.

Jeremy Hanson.
