Quamby Youth Detention Centre-upgrade

(Question No 1355)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Education, Youth and Family Services, upon notice, on 4 March 2004:

(1) In relation to the proposed upgrade of the Quamby Youth Detention Centre, what plans are there to expand the centre beyond the current footprint it occupies;

(2) If the upgrade includes acquiring additional land, can you give details of exactly what additional land is to be required and what area is to be taken up with the expansion of Quamby Youth Detention Centre.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to Mr Stefaniak's question is:

(1) The preliminary sketch plans indicate that Quamby has procured extra land on the outside of the existing perimeter as follows:

In the southeast corner, the perimeter fence line will be pushed out five metres to the south resulting in the official boundary in this direction being an additional 25 metres south;

In the southwest corner, the perimeter fence will be pushed out by an additional six metres to the south and an additional 25 metres to the west resulting in the official boundary being a further 20 metres south and 55 metres to the west;

In the northwest corner the perimeter fence will be pushed out by 25 metres to the west and five metres to the north resulting in an expansion of the official boundary by a further 60 metres to the west and 12 metres to the north;

In the northeast corner, the perimeter fence will be pushed out by an additional eight metres to the north resulting in an expansion of the official boundary by a further five metres to the north; and

The land we relinquished is a parcel of land on the outer northern boundary 100 metres by 75 metres approximately.

(2) Please refer to the information provided in response to part (1). During the upgrade of the centre, a gravel road will be placed on the outside of the current perimeter fence to allow trucks to access the western side of the centre and to minimise disruption to the operation of the centre as much as possible during redevelopment.

(The attached preliminary sketch is available at the Chamber Support Office.)
