Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 7 Hansard (3 July) . . Page.. 2803..


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

(1) The ACT Planning and Land Authority approved with conditions a development application to fence Griffith Oval (No 1) on 9 May 2008. Revised drawings complying with these conditions have not yet been submitted.

(2) The conditions imposed on the approval will alter the original application by reducing the height of the fence to one metre (from 1.2 metres); increasing the number of un-gated openings in the fence to ensure accessibility; and relocating the cricket training nets rather than removing them.

(3) Revised architectural drawings complying with the conditions of approval are expected to be lodged with the ACT Planning and Land Authority within the next two weeks. If the drawings satisfy the conditions of approval the project can proceed to the construction phase.

ActewAGL—meter reading

(Question No 2083)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 17 June 2008:

(1) What is the current practice for electricity meter readings at public housing properties if the person performing the reading cannot gain access to the meter;

(2) What avenues do residents of multi-residential public housing complexes have when their bills are distorted due to an approximation when access can not be gained.

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

(1) ActewAGL does not differentiate between private and public dwellings for the purpose of meter reading. Issues relating to access are addressed to the occupier of the property.

(2) If the tenant is invoiced on the basis of an estimate, ActewAGL may adjust a later invoice to reflect the actual consumption, once known or more accurately estimated. The issue is covered in the ActewAGL Electricity Supply Standard Customer Contract (clause 8.7).

Housing—Monterey complex

(Question No 2084)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 17 June 2008:

Are the public housing units in the Monterey complex in Reid on the list of public housing properties to be retrofitted to improve energy ratings.

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

(1) No. The implementation strategy is based on a range of criteria which mean that a relatively recent construction such as Monterey is not a priority compared to older stock.
