Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 03 Hansard (Thursday, 10 March 2005 2005) . . Page.. 966 ..


Do the costs associated with the use of Garema Place and other public areas in the ACT differ depending on (a) location and (b) users, for example charity groups as opposed to non-charity users; if so, please outline those charges;

If charges are applicable to charities, can these costs be reimbursed by the ACT Government; if so, how; if not, why not.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

No charges are required to be paid by registered charities to use a public place for the purpose of fundraising under the Charitable Collections Act (2003) or the Roads and Public Places Act (1937). Any person, including a charity, must obtain a permit to use a public place under the Roads and Public Places Act (1937), but these are free.

Cost-recovery based fees are charged for gated access to certain public places and for the use of electricity. Any person, including a charity, is required to pay these fees.

Fees for gated access and electricity connections are as follows:

Recovery costs for opening a gate

$24.50

Recovery cost for opening a power box

$24.50

Access to Electricity outlets in Garema Place, Petrie Plaza, and City Walk

$10.20

These fees do not vary depending on location, or whether or not the user is a charity.

The government has no policy of reimbursing gate access or electricity fees to persons or organisations claiming to be charities.
