Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 3 Hansard (23 October) . . Page.. 4115..

Mr Wood

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

As at 25 September 2003, the following percentages were completed: (a) internal 60%, and (b) external 80%.

The total percentage of works completed is approximately 68%.

The project is currently on schedule for completion in early December 2003, subject to there being no additional delays due to wet weather or other such factors.

The situation regarding a licensed club remains the same as when Sports Centres Australia was selected as the successful tenderer i.e. a licensed club will form a part of the tenant mix for the centre.

Whether the club includes poker machines will be the responsibility for the incoming tenant to determine, and if necessary pursue the relevant approvals and licences. Negotiations are still in progress between Sports Centres Australia and prospective club operators and a final decision is expected shortly.

The fee structure was set as part of Sports Centres Australia's tender submission in March 2001. Under the terms of the tender and associated Project Agreement, these charges are capped for the first three years of operation. The attached table taken from the tender documents sets out the schedule of key charges.

[A table attached to the reply was lodged with the Chamber Support Office.]
