Police and Citizens Youth Club

(Question No 1485)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 28 February 2007 (redirected to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services):

What happened to plans to refurbish and upgrade the Police and Citizens’ Youth Club (PCYC);

Why was the decision made to relocate the club to an outer suburb;

Is the land in Turner where the PCYC was located destined for sale;

If the land has been sold, (a) how much was raised, (b) who was it sold to and (c) what will the funds be used for;

Has the Government considered the possibility of assisting in the establishment of more than one such facility in the ACT.

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

The PCYC canvassed plans in the early 1990s to redevelop the Turner site. However, it was found that at that time the PCYC was not in the financial position to fund those plans and so the plans were not actioned.

The decision was made after analysis of the demographic needs of the Canberra community for the ages of 12-25, the ability to fund the move and available premises within Canberra.

No. There are no plans to sell the land.

The land has not been sold.

The PCYC is working in consultation with the government to achieve the best possible results for the Canberra community.
