per dwelling type are not made public at this time. A more detailed analysis can be provided once all tenders have been awarded.

Housing—multi-unit complexes (Question No 919)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Regulatory Services, upon notice, on 16 February 2018:

(1) What is the current timeframe for releasing the resources to support multi-unit living that have been developed by Access Canberra in consultation with stakeholders including the Owners Corporation Network.

(2) Will these resources be updated regularly to ensure their currency.

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

(1) Access Canberra has been working with key stakeholders, including the Owners Corporation Network (the OCN), to develop resources for persons purchasing or living in a units plan, including:

      •     a general guide which outlines the legal and other responsibilities of persons living in units plans;

      •     a more specific guide supporting understanding around the maintenance responsibilities in multi-unit residential settings; and

      •     two pamphlets for people who are considering purchasing a unit title residence.

The guides will be informative as well as engaging and targeted at those already living or renting in multi-unit settings, prospective buyers or renters and owners corporations and executive committees.

Stakeholder consultation to ensure these resources meet the needs of the ACT community takes time. Access Canberra is currently waiting on input from the OCN to a request for comments on the general guide. Once this input is received Access Canberra will quickly progress further stakeholder engagement with a view to having the suite of resources made available to the public in late March 2018.

(2) Access Canberra will monitor changes to legislation around multi-unit living to ensure these guides and pamphlets are up-to-date and continue to meet the needs of the ACT community.
