Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 9 Hansard (18 August) . . Page.. 2966..


Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Leases are agreed for various fixed terms under the Private Rental Leasing Scheme (PRL). Commonwealth funding for the Scheme ceased on 30 June 2005 and therefore to continue leasing properties on the private market under this Scheme after that date would be uneconomic. However, the terms of ongoing leases will need to be adhered to and therefore, as leases expire, Housing ACT will either purchase the property or relocate the tenant to an existing public housing property or to an alternative property specifically purchased for them;

(2) 72;

(3) 3 June 2010.

Playground safety

(Question No 424)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 23 June 2005:

(1) How much of the $45 000 for Playground Safety Program Package 6 has been expended to date this financial year;

(2) Have works been completed on Package 6; if so, when were works completed; if not, why not, and when will works be completed;

(3) Are there any new packages being developed for playground safety upgrades; if so, how many and what playgrounds have been shortlisted for upgrading.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Approximately $16,500.00 has been expended to date for Package 6. The remainder of the Package 6 funds have been committed to the playground upgrade on Captain Cook Crescent, Griffith.

(2) No, the upgrade of the playground on Captain Cook Crescent, Griffith is still to be completed. Package 6 works that have been completed are as follows:
