Roads—pay parking(Question No 407)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 22 June 2005:

What free parking is available to students at both Dickson and Ginninderra Colleges;

Do any of the students at these colleges pay to park in particular areas adjacent to the colleges; if so, where and what is the cost;

How many free parking spaces are allocated to students at Dickson and Canberra Colleges and are any conditions applicable, for example three for free;

Does the Government have any plans to introduce additional pay parking for carparks adjacent to or surrounding these colleges in the future; if so, where exactly will this additional pay parking be and what will be the cost to students for parking.

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

The provision and levels of student parking at these facilities is not a responsibility of the Department of Urban Services. The Department of Education and Training is responsible for the provision of student, teacher and administrative parking at these facilities.

There is no pay parking adjacent to these colleges.
