To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

   the strong opposition of residents of the City of Burnside in South Australia to the proposed roll-out of overhead cables within our city, based on the impact upon residential amenity, our local streetscapes and the environment.

   In addition to our concern about visual pollution, we are strongly opposed to the unnecessary duplication of infrastructure and the extent of immunity granted to telecommunications carriers from state and local government regulations.

Your petitioners request that the Senate should:

   intervene in this matter with a view to preventing the despoliation of residential amenity caused by aerial cabling, and obtain a positive outcome for the residents of Burnside and the wider community.
