Liberal MLA for Brindabella Nicole Lawder will move a motion in the Legislative Assembly today calling on the Labor-Greens Government to improve amenities surrounding Lake Tuggeranong.
The motion also calls on the ACT Government to consult with the Tuggeranong community to inform improvements and future upgrades.
Ms Lawder said the amenities around the lake are failing to accommodate locals and that Labor and the Greens should have no qualms supporting this motion if they are serious about improving community spaces.
“Lake Tuggeranong is a recreational area that is used and enjoyed by many locals, and it is well overdue for a refresh with better public amenities,” said Ms Lawder.
“Labor and the Greens have supported a push for improvements to Yerrabi Pond, so I’ve taken heart from that motion and hope for similar cross-party support for improvements at Lake Tuggeranong.
“If the government is willing to support that motion for Gungahlin residents, it should be enthusiastically supporting the same for Tuggeranong residents.
“For too long the people of Tuggeranong have been left behind by Labor and the Greens. It’s time that Tuggeranong got more bang for their buck,” Ms Lawder concluded
