ISSUES LIST compiled the GCC for the Gungahlin Community
GUNGAHLIN COMMUNITY COUNCIL (GCC) VISION
- - GCC seeks adherence to the original concept of self-contained satellite centres serviced by all necessary amenities minimising the need for residents to travel to other centres for work, shopping, services & entertainment.
- - Gungahlin still lacks services & amenities necessary to cater effectively for the current, and growing, population.
- - Gungahlin needs representation from candidates who live in the area or in nearby suburbs within the two current relevant electorates to have a better affinity in understanding the issues facing local residents & businesses.
The GCC Executive has identified the following issues by the as being the key areas of concern for Gungahlin residents as at January 2013. The list is on the GGC website to invite community comment.
The GCC Executive will represent the community in seeking the addressing of these issues & will report regularly on progress. (The members of the local community will have the opportunity to disagree with the stance adopted by the GCC.) The list will be forwarded to all ACT Legislative Assembly members, ACT Government Directorates & their contributions/responses will be noted.
This list will be a living document, regularly updated as issues are progressed & as new issues arise. It formed the basis of commitments to the Gungahlin area sought from candidates for the 2012 ACT Legislative Assembly elections & will provide a template for commitments from those members elected to the current ACT Legislative Assembly.
