ACT Housing properties
(Question No 358)
Mr Wood asked the Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services, upon notice, on 29 March 2001:
For the years (a) 1998 (b) 1999 and (c) 2000:
(1) How many properties did (a) ACT Housing sell or otherwise dispose of, and (b) purchase or build.
(2) What were the addresses of these properties.
Mr Moore: The answer to the member's question is:
(1) ACT Housing records the properties it has disposed of or acquired in the financial years and not in the calendar years as requested.
Financial Year Total properties Total properties
disposed of acquired
1997-98 171 91
1998-99 357 135
1999-00 588 275
Total 1116 501
(2) See Attachments. ACT Housing does not have readily available a register of the addresses of the properties that it has purchased over the three years. ACT Housing prefers not to publicise the addresses of its properties, as some of the properties are used by Supported Accommodation Assistance Program providers and to respect the privacy of tenants generally. The Attachments provide details of the properties purchased in each suburb.
