LA PEROUSE MARKET GARDENS   9 May 2012  Hansard link  Page: 11314

The Hon. JEREMY BUCKINGHAM: My question is directed to the Minister for Finance and Services, representing the Minister for Planning. Randwick City Council is currently planning to rezone the La Perouse Market Gardens to rural small lots to allow the gardens to continue into the future. Will the Government assure Randwick City Council and the local community that it will protect the entire area of the market gardens for ongoing use for agricultural production and not allow any of the gardens to be resumed for a cemetery?

The Hon. Michael Gallacher: That question was asked yesterday. This is ground hog day.

The Hon. GREG PEARCE: I thought it was asked yesterday but not of me.

The Hon. Jeremy Buckingham: It was the subject of a petition yesterday.


The PRESIDENT: Order! The Leader of the Government will come to order.

The Hon. GREG PEARCE: It was the subject of a petition: the member is alert. I am very pleased that Randwick council is looking at this issue. I look forward to the outcome of the deliberations of Randwick council.
