Gungahlin Regional Community Service

(Question No 885)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 14 February 2006:

What plans have been made to provide the Gungahlin Regional Community Service with a dedicated drop off spot for children and the disabled.

Mr Corbell

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

(1) I am advised that there is a lay-by currently being constructed off Ernest Cavanagh Street, near the intersection with Gungahlin Place. It allows for 15 minute parking, and will be available to the Gungahlin Regional Community Centre. Given it is within the public road reserve, it is not possible for it to be purely dedicated for children and the disabled.

The carpark for the new Child and Family Centre, which is under construction on the opposite side of Gungahlin Place, will include two parking spaces for persons with a disability and one space for a small bus.

The Land Development Agency has authorised the temporary use of land immediately to the north of the Gungahlin Regional Community Service for the purpose of pick up, setdown and parking for service vehicles of the Gungahlin Regional Community Service during construction of the Child and Family Centre.
