The ACT Government has announced that it will invest funding to improve 8 playgrounds in the Inner South, plus a review of playgrounds in Narrabundah. Details are provided in the attached letter from the Minister for City Services, Chris Steel MLA
The ISCCC urges the ACT Government to provide a coherent policy framework for responding to waste-to energy proposals in Canberra. This should exclude thermal waste to energy processes and import of waste from interstate. It should focus instead on alternatives such as finding markets for large waste streams and ACT Government initiatives on recycling such as green bins.
The ISCCC has declared that while some limited progress has been made recently to address building quality, for example the increased verification of skills and qualifications of builders, there remains much to be done. Any suggestion that the task has been substantially addressed is unrealistically optimistic or just political “spin”.
