Todays fire at Parkwood in Belconnen is another example of a potential hazard that was forewarned but ignored by the ACT Labor government, according to Shadow Minister for Urban Services, Alistair Coe.
This issue has been raised with me several times by people working in the area, and I have raised it repeatedly with the government to get them to take action and allay the concerns of people who could see the potential for disaster, but could see no action from the government.
Just like the GDE, just like Hawker Shops, this is yet another example of this government simply not listening to the people with the experience, the expertise and local knowledge. How many times do we have to put up with delays or disasters before this government will start listening to warnings? said Mr Coe.
