shacked up

22 September, 2009

MS A.J.G. MacTIERNAN (Armadale) [3.01 pm]: I have a petition couched in the following terms –
To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Western
Australia in Parliament assembled:

We the undersigned say that:
Leased Shack Site Communities, such as Wedge Island, Grey, Donnelly River, Broke Inlet, Dampier Archipelagos, and Israelite Bay have long been the traditional holiday/recreational destination for many thousands of ordinary Western Australians.


The loss of these communities will seriously diminish the social, economic and health well being of
many ordinary Western Australian families.

Now we ask that the Legislative Assembly support our campaign for the Government to
Examine how other States of Australia, including South Australia, Tasmania and New South Wales have retained conforming Shack Site Communities in order to preserve these valuable assets for many Western Australians to have affordable coastal holiday destinations and continue to allow human interaction all but lost in today’s society.

This petition conforms to the standing orders of the Legislative Assembly and contains 294 signatures.
[See petition 133.]

The SPEAKER: Does the member have another petition?

Ms A.J.G. MacTiernan: No, I do not.

The SPEAKER: It is a pity because I enjoyed that one.

MR A.J. CARPENTER (Willagee) [3.03 pm]: I feel inadequate now!

Subject: Shack Site Communities / Recreational Fishing Nets [Legislative Assembly – Petition]

Date: 15 September 2009
