To the honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

the strong opposition of the residents of the cities of Payneham and Campbelltown in South Australia to the proposed roll-out of overhead cables within our city, based on the impact upon residential amenity, out local streetscapes and 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 Payneham, Campbelltown and the wider community.
