(Question No. 82)
Mr Corbell asked the Minister for Education, upon notice, on 2 February 1999:
In relation to the proposal for the placement of a demountable building at the Ainslie Primary School site for use by the Ainslie After School Care Program
(1) Which Government agency or department will be responsible for the costs associated with the placement and operation of the demountable.
(2) What approvals are required for the placement of the demountable at the Ainslie Primary School in relation to planning and heritage requirements.
(3) have these approvals been granted, and if so, when.
Mr Stefaniak: The answer to Mr Corbell's question is:
(1) The relocation of the transportable unit and setting up for the After School Care Program is being funded by the Department of Education and Community Services through savings in the capital works program. The operation of the Ainslie After School Care Program is the responsibility of the Ainslie Primary School Parents and Citizens Association. The Parents and Citizens Association pays the telephone account and is responsible for cleaning and staffing. The Department pays for the costs of building maintenance and utilities, as was the case for the previous location in the Ainslie Infants School.
(2) Development approval through Planning and Land Management was required for works to set up the transportable unit and associated outdoor structures. As part of the approval process Planning and Land Management sought advice from the ACT Heritage Unit to ensure compliance with heritage requirements.
(3) Development approval was granted on 11 January 1999.
