Territory and Municipal Services Directorate—parks and reserves expenditure(Question No 1898)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 27 October 2011:

What is the current maintenance and upgrade schedule for the ACT’s National Parks, Reserves and Conservation Areas and (a) what is the budget allocated for this schedule for the years 2011-12 to 2014-15, and (b) what is the cost of each item of planned expenditure under the schedule in 2011-12.

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

1(a) The budget allocated to the listed maintenance and upgrade projects for the ACT’s National Parks, Reserves and Conservation Areas for 11/12 is $8.419 million. This figure excludes the capital items in Table 5 and excludes the many scheduled and reactive maintenance and upgrade actions performed by Parks and Conservation staff and managed via individual and team staff work programs. Budgets for maintenance and asset upgrade schedules for future years will be determined by government budget allocations, risk identification and asset condition assessment.

1(b) The following Tables 1-5 list only significant projects which have a budget specifically allocated. The projects are funded from various sources including recurrent, capital, initiatives and insurance.
