TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
The residents and supporters of Giralang note that:
- the local shops in Giralang have sat unused and in a state of semi-development for 15 years;

- progress has been made with the developer settling the legal action against them and gaining approval for a Development Application;

- over the last 12 months however progress to build the shops has stalled with no supermarket secured and the development taken off the sales market;

- the developer, who is ultimately responsible under the lease for progressing the shops, has provided only one clear update to the community in this time, which provided no clear indication of what happens next.
As such, the residents of Giralang hereby petition the ACT Legisative Assembly to
- seek a full update from the developer on any progress and when we can see action on delivering our shops.
