The Greens SA will continue to work on breaking the impasse over the former Le Cornu site on O’Connell St, North Adelaide, despite a complete and bewildering lack of interest by the old parties, according to Greens SA Parliamentary Leader, Mark Parnell MLC.
The Greens will move in Parliament next week to change the laws covering backyard barbeques and fires to bring a more common sense approach to the issue, according to Mark Parnell MLC, Parliamentary Leader of the Greens SA.
The Greens SA say it's time to end the ongoing saga of the vacant Le Cornu site in North Adelaide, by giving State and Local Governments the power to temporarily acquire land for public purposes.
The proposal for a commercial helipad in the Adelaide Parklands by the banks of the Torrens is an inappropriate privatisation of community land and should be abandoned, according to Mark Parnell MLC, Parliamentary Leader of the Greens SA.
Greens Parliamentary Leader Mark Parnell MLC’s response:
“The Greens have welcomed new spending on public transport including the new Park and Ride stations and the increased frequency on metro rail lines. However, the electrification of the Gawler line seems as elusive as ever with the Government commitment dependent on matching federal funding.”
The Greens will move in State Parliament to reverse changes made last year to the Nuclear Waste Storage Facility (Prohibition) Act, which the Government said were necessary to enable public consultation over whether South Australia should become the World’s nuclear waste dump.
