Moving APS staff to airport would be bad for Canberra

ACT Greens MLA, Shane Rattenbury, says that reports that 5500 Immigration and Customs staff might be moved from Belconnen to the Brindabella Business Park is evidence of the Federal Government’s disregard for its public servants and shows a lack of understanding of the Canberra community.

 “A move like this would isolate a huge number of Canberrans, moving them away from good public transport options and retail facilities,” said Mr Rattenbury.

 “Removing 5500 staff from the area would be a significant blow to the Belconnen community, with these discussions are already causing a great deal of anxiety for businesses.

 “Belconnen is well served by public transport connections, has a strong retail sector, and is centred within the surrounding suburbs. These are all ideal attributes for a major employment hub, and every effort should be made to keep the Departments in Belconnen,” Mr Rattenbury concluded.
