Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 08 Hansard (Thursday, 5 August 2021) . . Page.. 2541 ..


The tenant may be held responsible for the cost of pest control depending on the circumstances. Discretion can be exercised by management where special circumstances are demonstrated, for example public health risks.

Some individuals require further assistance to sustain their tenancies. As a Model Social Landlord, Housing Managers refer tenants who require extra help to a range of community support providers.

Housing ACT funds the Supportive Tenancy Service (STS) which assists people across Canberra to maintain a safe and stable home. The service is available to all households, including public and private tenants and homeowners. Funding for the STS during 2020-21 was approximately $860,000.

In situations where pest control has been undertaken by the TFM, tenants are expected to contact the TFM if there are any follow up concerns, including if the pests return. Further treatments can be undertaken as required.

Education—teachers

Ms Berry (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Clay on Wednesday, 23 June 2021):

The Education Directorate has employment arrangements in place that allows teachers who have left the profession to recommence at any time as a casual or temporary employee with the opportunity for re-appointment as a permanent teacher through either ongoing recruitment campaigns or an in-school ratings assessment.

Sport—swimming pools

Ms Berry (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Thursday, 24 June 2021):

Thank you for your questions relating to the Stromlo Leisure Centre.

There is no known water pumping issue for the SO-metre pool at the Stromlo Leisure Centre. The new $36.49 million Stromlo Leisure Centre has been an important addition to the ACT Government's existing public pools, enabling even more people to get active and learn critical water safety skills.

The are no plans to close the Stromlo Leisure Centre 50-metre pool.

Florey shops—delivery vehicles

Mr Steel (in reply to a question by Mr Cain on Thursday, 24 June 2021):

Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) officers have visited the site six times since our last discussion and have also spoken with the local supermarket manager regarding their deliveries.
