Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 1 Hansard (20 February) . . Page.. 402..


(5) Not applicable.

(6) At this stage only anecdotal evidence is available and it will take some time to determine long-term trends. It should, however, be noted that the design of the lighting and the other improvements was undertaken to improve both perceived and actual tenant safety and encourage a greater sense of ownership of the complex in the tenants. This outcome is reflected in the comments received to date from tenants and ACT Housing staff and from the Guardian Service.

(7) The lighting was designed by an electrical engineering firm to meet relevant Australian Standards. After hours audits/ inspections have been conducted by the designer, and as a result post-construction lux testing has not been considered necessary.

(8) No. Design and locational factors ensure that the lighting targets pathways, recreational areas, open spaces and landscaped areas, and does not impinge on windows. This was a key factor in the design of the lighting improvements as it was important that tenants, as well as neighbours, were protected from light pollution.

(9) Windeyer Court in Watson, is undergoing a $ 1.1m upgrade, to be completed mid year. Stuart Flats in Griffith is undergoing improvements to building fabric and minor improvements to the interior of units, in a $0.57m project. Fraser Court, Kingston is undergoing improvements to building fabric, in a $5m project.
