Schools—Blue Gum School

Mr Rattenbury (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Seselja on Tuesday, 26 February 2013): When an application is received by the ACT Property Group, applicants are advised that there is limited space and that they will be contacted when a suitable site becomes available.

In relation to the Blue Gum School application, discussions were held between ACT Property Group and Blue Gum School in early 2012 regarding the space and no commitments were given at that time on the future use of the Hackett Community Centre. The area at Hackett Community Centre did not become available until Friday 9 November 2012 when the previous tenant vacated.

In January 2013 ACT Property Group advised Blue Gum that, due to the redevelopment of the Downer Business Park Precinct, priority for this space would be given to the displaced community groups from Downer.

An offer has been made, and accepted, by a community group being displaced from the Downer Business Park. This group will be taking up occupancy this month.

As this group is not taking all the space ACT Property Group subsequently met with the Blue Gum School on 27 March 2013 and offered the remaining area to the school. The school is currently considering the offer and will get back to ACT Property Group in the coming weeks.

Rivett shops—health and safety

Mr Rattenbury (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mrs Jones on Thursday, 14 February 2013): The area in question is leased land and consequently not maintained by the ACT Government. However, the Director-General of the Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) Directorate has written to the shop owners and operators regarding the issue.

Rivett shops—health and safety

The area in question is leased land and consequently not maintained by the ACT Government. However, the Director-General of the Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) Directorate has written to the shop owners and operators regarding the issue.
