Can the Minister provide the (a) full annual average cost of maintenance for a Housing ACT dwelling, (b) full annual costs of providing keys, including replacement keys, for a Housing ACT dwelling and (c) average cost to design, build and fit out a Housing ACT dwelling.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(a) the annual average cost of maintenance per dwelling is approximately $3,300.

(b) the annual cost of providing keys, including replacement keys, for a public housing dwelling in 2014-15 was approximately $132.00.
