Gungahlin swimming pool
(Question No 1649)
Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 22 August 2007 (redirected to the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation):
(1) How many people does Gungahlin have to have before it is allocated a 50 metre pool;
(2) How many private pools has the Minister approved in Gungahlin;
(3) Can the Minister outline the formula or process used to determine an area's eligibility for a public pool.
Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) In 1997 the government commissioned a consultant to prepare a strategic plan for the provision of swimming pools and related facilities in the ACT over the next 10 to 15 years. In that report, which has provided the government with broad planning guidance since it was completed, the consultant recommended that "once the Gungahlin population exceeds 50,000...there will be justification for a medium scale aquatic/leisure facility to complement the Belconnen facility and specifically serve the residents of Gungahlin".
