Housing ACT—property repair costs (Question No 2181)
Mr Coe asked the Minister for Community Services, upon notice, on 28 March 2012:
(1) What is the total cost of repairs to Housing ACT owned properties that required maintenance due to malicious damage and/or vandalism each month in (a) 2010, (b) 2011 and (c) 2012 to date.
(2) How much of the damage referred to in part (1) was attributed to (a) the tenant of the property damaged, (b) another Housing ACT tenant or (c) unknown.
(3) How much of the cost of repairs identified and attributed in part (2) has been recovered.
Ms Burch: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
The information sought is not in an easily retrievable form. To collect and assemble such information would require a considerable diversion of resources from the provision of direct services to clients, which I am not prepared to authorise.
Sport and recreation—tennis (Question No 2183)
Ms Hunter asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 29 March 2012 (redirected to the Minister for Economic Development):
(1) How many public tennis clubs are there in the ACT.
(2) How does the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) determine the fees charged to local tennis clubs for tennis courts in Canberra.
(3) How do the charges referred to in part (2) differ from fees charged for other sporting clubs and/or facilities.
(4) What maintenance does TAMS do for tennis courts in the ACT and how much does this cost per court.
Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) There are 23 leases provided to community tennis clubs in the ACT including the two leases provided to Tennis ACT at Lyneham. These leases are managed through the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate.
(2) The provisions in each individual Crown lease determine the land rent and other charges that are required to be paid by the individual lessee. For concessional leases, such as these community tennis clubs, the rate at which fees and charges are calculated is akin to that applied to commercial entities however the land valuation to which this rate is applied is significantly reduced due to its concessional status.
